Allene obtained her bachelor's of Nursing from the University of Calgary in 2010 which she has used to work as an RN at the children's hospital in Calgary the past 9 years. Her love of children and interest in helping them develop to their fullest potential led her to discover and fall in love with the Montessori approach. She followed her passion and obtained her AMI diploma in Primary Montessori Education in 2018 in Vancouver, BC. She has continued to work as a pediatric nurse since obtaining her training while volunteering and substituting at various Montessori schools in Calgary. She is thrilled to work with the children in the classroom on a more regular basis this year. In her spare time she and husband enjoy exploring the great outdoors.
