As a survivor of physical and sexual violence, Wen-Do has been a life changing experience for me. It helped me feel safer, increased my confidence, and ultimately helped me to heal. I took my first basic course in 1999, started taking intermediate classes in 2006, and I’ve been teaching Wen-Do since 2014.
I teach primarily in Peterborough, where I’ve worked in the Social Work field since 2002. Most of this work has been focused on supporting women who have experienced violence in their lives. I love teaching Wen-Do because I get to help women and girls discover and embrace their voice, confidence, and power!
