I love this place and will work hard to protect the things we cherish while building a smart local economy that delivers sustainable prosperity for us all.
My family stretches back three generations here. I’m committed to leaving a legacy for our children by keeping our libraries free and well funded, saving our special trees, conserving our water, and protecting our natural and built heritage.
I’m also ambitious for our city wanting to improve our quality of life. I want us to be able to cycle safely to work, harvest fruit off our street trees, swim safely in the river, and have more local farmer’s markets.
I work in central government as an economics and conservation advisor. I serve on the Family Centre Board, work with young people, and volunteer on local beach and forest restorations. I have a big heart for my community and the eco-smarts to lead it.
