About Kristine

Yayoi KusamaInfinity Mirrors at AGO. May 2019.

I spent the 16 years working in education management, providing counsel and support in private school admissions.

In that time, I have spoken to families with children in public schools, in Catholic schools, in French immersion programs, in arts programs in French schools, in co-ed and single sex private schools, in Montessori, in alternative schools and home schooling.

But I have worn other hats including: library staff, dance instructor, social historian (providing presentations in schools and galleries), freelance journalist and contributor (for CBC and Toronto Star outlets among others).

As well, I was trained as a storyteller through the Toronto District School Board and built two puppet shows for Toronto Public Library. I also am a retired semi-professional dancer with knowledge of Ballroom, Latin and Swing.
