I was born on January 30, 1988 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA at the University of New Mexico Hospital to Canadian parents. I was born very premature and remained in hospital for over a week before I could be flown back to Manitoba! My middle name is after my great-aunt Leeanne Sanchez who supported my parents through the ordeal.
Once back in Canada I spent three months in hospital at the Health Science Centre in Winnipeg before I could finally join my parents on their farm west of Darlingford. The addition of a brother, Alexander, on March 18, 1990 completed our family.
I attended both the University of Winnipeg and Red River College before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a second major in History. The Creative Communications program at RRC helped me to get a job at the Portage Daily Graphic in Portage la Prairie where I chased news from May 2011 until July of 2013.
I am currently a substitute teacher and stay at home mom, hoping to return to school to get my Bachelor of Education.
I enjoys reading, history, yoga, crafting, decluttering, and of course family tree! I have been chasing my roots since the age of 12 when I got research, photographs, and much encouragement from my great-aunt Eileen Laing and great-grandma Eileen Law.

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.
Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.
Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.
Leader, Global Cemeteries

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.
You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.
Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?
Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).
