I grew up in Powell River and went to public school here, as did both of my children.

As a parent I served as a dedicated volunteer for 17 years, working with students, parents and teachers on a variety of tasks and activities in classrooms, on the playground and coordinating special events.

In my work as executive director for Powell River and District United Way, I advocate for children, families and the betterment of our community every single day.

I believe in the power of collaboration, accountability and the devotion it takes to be part of the team responsible for the success of all students.

I believe the opportunity to serve as trustee is the next step in a natural progression for me to continue to advocate for students and teachers in our community.
