I am civic-minded and volunteer in my community. I have lived on the North Shore for twenty-one years, and I’ve been involved in the community through my children’s activities, volunteer committees, and organizing community events. I was on the Ridgeway PAC for ten years, I have been chairperson for the City of North Vancouver Social Planning Advisory committee, a member of the City of North Vancouver Planning commission, and Director of DI, a youth organization, organizing hundreds of volunteers and teams in BC, and I have coached youth high school and club volleyball.
What I do
I am a business owner and sell juice to cafeterias, concessions and distributors. I recently earned my M.A. in Political Science from SFU, where I enjoyed researching active transportation policy and how to implement reconciliation into action. A high-quality public education system is the foundation of a democratic society. I will work with my fellow trustees to engage our community in building a safe environment that will enrich and enhance students' knowledge.
Get in touch
I am a lifelong advocate for quality education and a strong start in life for our kids. Schools are community-building institutions that work to enrich and support our students to see them successfully achieve their goals. I will listen to the community and support a school system that reflects local priorities, values and expectations. School district governance must be transparent, responsive, and collaborative. Strengthening collaborative and respectful relationships with teachers, staff and community members will improve decision-making and school district governance. I have the knowledge and passion to work collaboratively with all North Vancouver School District members to reach these goals.
