I was born in Vancouver for the first nine years of my life. After that my family moved to Burnaby where I grew up. At 22 years of age I met and married a military man.
Unfortunately the marriage broke down and I moved back to Maple Ridge thirteen years ago now.

While being involved in the military we were posted to the East Coast, Winning, and Kentucky, USA.

I have a General BSc and a BScRN degree. I have a none practicing good standing RPN in Ontario LPN in British Columbia. I have not nursed in British Columbia. I have nursed in Ontario as a Community Nurse helping palliative clients. I have also nursed in Peru and in the Dominican Republic.

Having said that I have used a number of medical systems. Both as a parent and for myself. I find British Columbia’s health care system the most lacking.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
The reason I’m running is after reading the line up of candidates I felt that we as a community were being exposed to more of the same. Higher taxes and more unaffordable living in Maple Ridge. I wanted to offer voters an alternative choice.
