I am a community engagement specialist with over two decades’ experience in consultation, facilitation, strategic communications and project management. I love working with individuals and groups to find solutions and help shape a vision for a better tomorrow.
I am a former municipal councillor and regional district director. I served three terms on Saanich Council (2008-2018), and decided not to seek re-election in the 2018 municipal election.
I am the project manager for the BC government’s active transportation strategy. I believe in creating healthy communities, and was the Provincial Lead for the Healthy Communities program. I led the stakeholder engagement and change management program for the Province’s Pharmanet modernization initiative, including consultation with physicians, clinicians and pharmacists.
I grew up in the capital region, graduated from Claremont Secondary and have Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Victoria. I have two children – seven and nine years old – and a twelve-year-old Beagle. When I am not shuttling kids to baseball, dance and soccer, you’ll find me cycling, running and playing guitar. I also enjoy a good cup (or three) of coffee.
