Kathleen has spent more than ten years as a teacher in Ontario’s public school system. During her time as a teacher, she worked with both elementary and secondary school students, and was always working to make school a more positive place for everyone. She was a vocal advocate for inclusive spaces, which led to real institutional change for students who were indigenous and those who were a part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

She has worked with disenfranchised youth in Nunavut, learned about sustainability in Kenya, and worked with underprivileged youth in the Tim Horton Youth Leadership Program and the Brantford Boys and Girl Clubs.
