We live in a beautiful place. As people and businesses move here, pressure on our neighbourhoods, water and greenspaces will increase. Land-use zoning can give residents and businesses the security that they deserve.

I believe in collaboration with other governments and citizens. For example, as I visit homes, I hear concern about traffic. Why not use local knowledge to improve safety for commuters and residents?

The regional district is well positioned to move on these issues as well as resource recovery and recreation: I would like to be part of the team.

I have lived in Area B for 27 years and raised three children here with my husband, David. I have worked in forestry, journalism and outdoor education. I volunteer and belong to local groups. I love to hike and kayak.

I will make decisions based on the long-term health of our environment and communities.
