Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada Tina was highly involved in her community. While completing her bachelor degree in Theoretical Linguistics she was working part time in the cosmetics industry which took her to Athens, Greece in 1993 to coach and train in customer service and product knowledge. Being a native speaker of English she was asked to tutor young children in ESL. It was then when she fell in love with education.

She creates a safe place for letting go of the pain and welcoming the healing.
