Mary-Ann is the founder and heart of Nova’s Ark. Mary-Ann spent over 25 years in education, and has been a passionate supporter of inclusion throughout her years in the classroom. As a special education facilitator, and finally as an award winning elementary principal receiving a Canada’s Outstanding Principal Award in 2006. In 2011, Mary-Ann made the decision to focus solely on fulfilling her dream on the endless possibilities of Nova’s Ark – Where Special is Welcome. Today, we are that unique educational program that continues to change and grow with our participants to meet them where they are, outside of four walls.
