I have lived in the Kamloops area for more than 38 years, having moved to Kamloops in 1991.
I am a wife and mother of two amazing teenage boys. My eldest graduated in 2016 and my youngest is in his ninth year of education. I have owned homes and lived in several different areas of Kamloops over the years and I can tell you that one thing has always stayed constant: Kamloops is my home, my family is here and I plan to retire here with the hopes that my children and their children might have the opportunity to stay close by as they raise their own families here.
My background is as a licensed registered care aid, with the bulk of my career in private and palliative home care. After ending my eight-year contract as a home share provider I decided to concentrate on pursuing some personal interests.
I have always been interested and passionate about politics. I got involved in supporting local economic development opportunities when the Ajax Mine application came to town and I felt strongly that the process should be supported. I am proud to be known as the woman who created the Support Ajax movement in Kamloops, but I hope to also be known as the councillor who supports all economic, employment and social programs and opportunities that aid the prosperity of the community that I love.
