My goal is to serve as trustee with Compassion, Curiosity, Clear Communication, Action, and Accountability. I am ready for this responsibility and would be honoured to receive your support.

I am a mom of two high school students in SD61. I am also a proud graduate of the SD61 system. I am ready for the responsibility that comes along with using my voice and advocacy efforts for students and their learning community. I will arrive and be ready to sit around the table with an open mind and open heart and ready to work towards a governance structure that is transparent and accountable, with meaningful engagement processes; to advocate for proper and adequate funding for special needs student; to focus on mental health and wraparound services; and to ensure our schools are inclusive and safe spaces for all our LGBTQIA2S+ students.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
For years I have been looking for avenues to serve our kids and their school communities allowing them to reach their own individual potential in a safe and inclusive environment. The motivation runs deep from both a personal and professional perspective.

I have first-hand, lived experience as a parent with a child needing learning supports. My work experience in stakeholder relations for the K-12 sector allowed me to gain a deep understanding of the role each stakeholder and level play in the system. I believe I have a solid foundation on which I can base my advocacy efforts on behalf of all students and families of SD61.
