Welcome to my website!

I’ve lived in Nanaimo for 30 years and absolutely love it. The vibrant diverse community we have here is something that constantly leaves me with a smile. Nanaimo is such a beautiful place to call home!

I’m a thinker and a doer. I thrive on team work and overcoming challenges; I see challenges as being opportunities to further improve upon the amazing community we live in. You can find out more about me here.

I enjoy listening to different viewpoints and engaging in deep discussion around the things that can help Nanaimo become a better place for everyone. Please feel welcome to send me an email or reach out to me on Facebook.

Come join in the conversation – you can find some of my recent posts below and I’d love to hear from you!
