I’m a long-time resident of the city of Kamloops, choosing to move here in 2001 over other cities. I chose Kamloops because I recognized the opportunities this community would have for both myself and my son.
I attended the University College of the Cariboo and Thompson Rivers University earning undergraduate degrees in both journalism, and ecology and a Master’s degree in environmental science with a focus on policy and planning.
I’m running for city council for the same reason I’m now working for the university as a fundraiser: to be in service to the people in this community that gave my family the opportunity to succeed. People like you.
As a young single mother, I accessed many services, including low-income housing. Without the support from this community, I wouldn’t be as accomplished as I am today.
I bring balance and a fresh perspective. I’ve worked in both the natural resource industry and the non-profit sector. I have experience as a science educator and have conducted peer-reviewed research.
I understand the challenges inherent to resource development and also see the opportunities that lie in creating new economies which support our existing resource economy and in creating new opportunities through the use of new technology. I am committed to this community and dedicated to progress.
