Irina is a minister in the Anglican Church of Canada. Her family includes her husband William, daughter Sophia (age 5), and son Lucas (age 3). Irina has a love of animals and outdoors, rides horses and trains for triathlons in her "spare" time, and enjoys abstract painting with oils. Her love of children and interest in their cognitive and faith development, coupled with her own passion for visual art and a first-hand experience of the power of arts for healing and spiritual growth, has inspired her to start the "Gifts of the Spirit" initiative at Grace Church -- unique in Toronto.
