I came to NL from UK as a music teacher. I met my husband in the school. We then spent years on the coast of Labrador and Uganda, East Africa during which time I discovered I loved teaching ESL! On returning to NL I worked as an ESL ( EAL) teacher and picked up my fiddle again and joined the NSO for the best musical experience of my life!
