So you’ve made it to my website – welcome! 🙂

Where to start… Well, I’ve lived in Nanaimo for over 30 years and absolutely love it here – Nanaimo is a fantastic 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.

I’m involved in a variety of initiatives and am passionate about using my skills in ways that can help move things forward in positive productive ways. I especially enjoy discussing, collaborating, and doing things that can help Nanaimo become a better place for everyone.

I hope you’ll come join in the conversation – you can find some of my thoughts in the posts below and I’d love to hear yours too!
