A masterful puppet builder and puppeteer, she has effectively used puppetry to educate children on such crucial issues as safety, nutrition, environmental awareness and addictions. She also delighted adults and children alike with her puppets Iggy, Jacob and Gloria in "Under the Umbrella Tree", the popular television show she produced. Her Canadian, family-oriented programs, all of high quality, have been a breath of fresh air in a medium often dominated by other countries and by violence.
