My name is Julie Zinck, and I am an educator who has been teaching in the public school system in Nova Scotia for over 25 years. Beyond my education degree, I have received a Masters of Education in Educational Technology from Mount Saint Vincent University and a Graduate Diploma in Counseling from Cape Breton University. Currently, I am completing a Masters in Education in Counselling from Acadia University to become a Registered Counselling Therapist and a School Counsellor. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the beautiful outdoors our province has to offer with my husband and two Goldendoodles. Together, we also enjoy spending time with our three adult children and one grandchild! In all of my work, both personally and professionally, I love to seek new opportunities to learn and grow. I am excited to be part of HOPE and look forward to witnessing its positive impact in the community.
