After several years volunteering around and in school environments, I've decided to run for School Trustee on October 20th.
I moved to West Vancouver in 2002, married a life long resident of West Vancouver and we are raising our son here.
My professional experience includes 20+ years in supply chain management, working in and with teams.

We are so fortunate to be served by School District 45 and benefit from all the services available through the staff who dedicate their working hours (and beyond) to our children.
Having a son on the autism spectrum, I have some experience with the challenges some children face navigating the school system. While we have amazing teams and programs in our schools, I will work hard as Trustee to ensure all families get the best chance to avail themselves of the opportunities here in School District 45 and leave no child behind.
