I include additional thoughts, examples, solutions and action points on my website for those wanting to learn a little more about my platform. Please feel free to give it a read or message me directly with questions!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
As a renter and business owner within the city I can offer feet on the ground insights. Trained in the social sciences and business. I am ambitious and capable.
My fiancé and I rent in Nicomekl and I own (and work in) my small business on the one way. My store is named Hempyz and having been a staple within the community since 2008, you may have seen us! I have a passion for travelling with my favourite destinations having been Peru, Italy and Argentina.
I took university classes at KPU and excelled with my studies. Specifically, I took Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology. I loved my time there but in my early twenties I diverted my attention from scholastic pursuits to focus on my career. While I haven’t attended Kwantlen for some time, my company continues to provide a scholarship for students studying Sociology there annually.
In life I enjoy challenging myself, whether it’s with new endeavours (such as this campaign) or through other unique experiences. I have an open mind and like to learn. While I don’t expect to agree with everyone or to hold the same views, I believe those differing opinions offer a dynamic nature to conversations. There is always something to be gained through respectfully working with others.
I am a member of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, and I have recently been appointed to their Government Policy Committee.
I am running as an independent candidate and will not operate in a slate with any other candidates.
Reason for running
I haven't felt represented by our current council for some time. I often feel that the planning within the city it out of touch with community needs.
After having the same representation in council for many years, I feel we need new ideas and voices. At the end of the day if you want a change, you must change your vote.
