I am passionate about creating safe, caring, and inclusive communities, and I know the best way to do that is by creating safe, caring, and inclusive schools. I am seeking a second term as Trustee because I want to ensure our schools have the appropriate resources and ideological underpinnings to enable the success of each student in our district.
I bring ten years’ experience in planning, research, and stakeholder engagement. My commitment to social justice has driven my professional interests towards research problems involving programs and services for traditionally under-serviced people and communities including First Nations, immigrants, women, and people with disabilities.
I have recently joined the BC Representative for Children and Youth as an Investigations Analyst. I hold a Master of Arts in Sociology from Queen’s University, and a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) from Bishop’s University. I have researched, lectured, and published in the fields of Gender, Education, Disability Studies and Law.
I have been a strong voice for public education advocating at the provincial level for improved supports for students. I am the founder and administrator of Support for BC Students on Facebook, a page that provides thought-provoking content and education news for over 18,600 subscribers.
I am a grateful settler on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples where I am proud to be raising three little boys (Harley 7, Fox 5, and Wilder 2) with my incredibly supportive husband Matthew.
