My name is Shelley Moir, and I am the new owner of Valley Driver Training. I was somewhat of a late bloomer, in that I did not get my Driver’s Licence until I was 25 years old. But once I experienced the freedom of being able to go where I want, whenever I wanted too, I asked myself “Why did I wait so long?” I discovered that I love to drive. Couple that with my enjoyment of teaching, going into the driver education field just seemed the right path for me to follow. I have been an instructor with Valley Driver Training for the last 13 years. But my story does not end there. I have become involved with the Driving Assessment and Rehab Services program where I have opportunities to work with drivers who have had their licences medically suspended and are working towards reinstatement. I also work closely with Canadian Pro Drivers, in their corporate division focusing on Defensive Driving Techniques for the professional driver. Needless to say, there is never a dull moment for me. I am proud to be the new owner of this business and hope to carry on it’s strong tradition of being “Sudbury’s favourite driving school.”
My name is Lise Lanteigne I have been a driving instructor for 11 years now. Time goes by fast when you enjoy what you do for a living. Driving has always been my career. I drove a Handy Transit Bus for 19 years and delivered at the mines for 2years, then this ..My satisfaction is when I see the smiles and excitement on my students’ faces. Also watching them build confidence in themselves and actually realizing that driving is not as complicated as it seemed. When you enjoy what you do for a living it is not called a job …it is an enjoyment that I hope I can continue to do for many more years.
My name is Sharon Marchioni and I bring 47 years of driving experience to Valley Driver Training, including nine years as a Driver with Sudbury Transit. My diverse employment history – encompassing the corporate, private and public sectors – has allowed me to develop strong professional ethics. In addition, my training as a public speaker gives me a confident and expressive demeanour that engages my students both in the car and in the classroom.
“I firmly believe that the learning experience should be both engaging and dynamic.”
My name is Tammy and I’m a 46 year old mother of 2 boys. I became a Driving Instructor 4 and a half years ago after attending Humber College in Etobicoke and started working for Valley Driver Training in April 2014. I have a lot of patience and I love meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. This is the best and most rewarding job I have ever had!
My name is Jamie Nassas. The reason I got into this is still unclear to me, but I am happy I did. I’ve always enjoyed being able to help people get to where they want to be. I haven’t been happier in any other job than this. So if you enjoy laughing along the way while learning at the same time then I’m your instructor!!
