Caroline was raised in Montreal, where she received a BEd in Phys Ed at McGill University. She then pursued a career in Environmental Science where she received an MSc from Stirling University in Scotland and a PhD from the University of Brighton in England. She is the mother of two teenaged girls, Molly and Tessa. After beginning a career as an environmental scientist, Caroline felt a deep sense of calling to ordained ministry. As part of her broader ministry formation, she completed a BTh and an MPTh at Saint Paul University. Caroline works for the Public Service of Canada, where she is the Director of the Environmental Assessment Division, at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), and for the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, where she was ordained a deacon on May 2nd, 2016. As a deacon, it’s Caroline’s faithful desire to live an undivided life; one in which she is an instrument of reconciliation of science and faith, the Church and the world. Caroline is very excited about further developing her diaconal ministry through her appointment at St John’s the Evangelist, and through ongoing volunteer work with the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre. Caroline is motivated by a deeply rooted theological sense of social and eco-justice issues. In her spare time, Caroline loves to run and plays recreational hockey.
