My name is Krystal Tucker and, since the winter of 2018, I have been the childcare assistant at the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa. In 2012 I graduated from Carleton University with Honors and received my Bachelor of Arts in English. During my time in university I took several Child Psychology courses and worked part time at Youville Center. Since graduating I have worked as a freelance writer, transcriber, content writer, editor, ghost writer and currently I work as an Educational Assistant at Kanata Academy. I am certified in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention and have taken Fire and Safety Training through Storey Homes. I am a lover of arts, music and literature and take great pride in calling myself a mental health advocate, animal liberation advocate and a LGBTQ+ ally. Communications has always been my specialty and having found a way to bring my spirit and passion into this community has been really rewarding. I look forward to continuing to strengthen this community with you and your families.
