I am a small business owner and first-term Nanaimo city councillor seeking re-election. I have a background in conservation biology and social work and worked as a registered clinical counsellor in the prison system. I owned and operated a tree service business for almost a decade and recently converted it to a worker-owned cooperative. During my time on council, I was elected by my peers to serve as a director-at-large on the Union of BC Municipalities. In that role, I lobbied the province on behalf of all BC local governments for greater action on affordable housing, homelessness, and climate change.
