Family is central to everything I stand for and believe in. I want my children to grow up in a supportive and inclusive society with every equal opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
I am ready to stand up, step forward and contribute to my community.
Our most cherished institutions need constant care and attention to thrive - just like our children do. I will work hard every day to defend, support and grow our local school board so it too can thrive.
I strongly believe in our public education system and will ensure all students can access equally everything it has to offer.
I will educate myself constantly, listen carefully to others and make sound, balanced decisions.
Throughout my career I have been at the forefront of technology and transformation.
The disruption to our childrens' educations during the pandemic has shown that deep attention is needed to engage and inspire them during challenging times. We must learn from this time and adopt bold new approaches to better prepare for their future.
Engage and Inspire Students – Providing unique and innovative learning opportunities and encouraging all interests.
Provide Safe, Supportive Environments – Bullying has no place in our schools. We must never look away and always seek opportunities to guide and support those being hurt and causing harm.
Champion Health & Wellbeing – In this fast paced and hyper-connected world, more than ever we must provide mental health support and encourage overall wellbeing for both our students and teachers.
Grow Lifelong Connections with Nature - Our schools should be shining examples of energy efficiency with engaging natural surroundings. From our programming to our playgrounds, we should encourage connecting with nature and getting our hands dirty.
Build Community - I will listen to and engage with the community to inform my decisions and explore new ways to communicate what Trustees and School Boards do for them.
Be heard, every single vote matters!
Voting serves all of us. Thank you for your commitment.
