Biography

submitted by the candidate or their team
The experiences our children have in our school system are fundamental in creating confident, thriving members of our community. I am committed to ensuring that our children have their best chance to succeed in our school district.

I grew up in Abbotsford, and am a parent of two neurodiverse children, one who is currently in the school district and one who has recently graduated. I have been actively involved in the PAC (parental advisory council) at three different schools from grades K-12 for over 6 years. My roles have been President, Treasurer, general support, and special events with an emphasis on fundraising. I have been employed with the Abbotsford School District for almost 7 years as a noon hour supervisor (duty mom) and I have had the honour of watching some of our children grow into themselves (into their potential). I’ve laughed with them, and I’ve cried with them, and those experiences motivated me to become a member of ARJAA (Abbotsford Restorative Justice and Advocacy Association). I value ensuring that our children are treated with compassion, fairness and that they receive the best possible instruction. I have a strong regard for education and am a part-time student at UFV and currently working towards my Bachelor of Arts degree.
