Married for 23 years to my husband Ken, we have been blessed with a large, diverse, and wonderful family. I have spent the last 26 years in the health and wellness industry in various roles. Four years ago I started my Master of Divinity at Acadia with the intention of transitioning into community ministry. I believe my education has helped equip me for community leadership and service. This new position as Councillor for my District is an exciting opportunity to use the passion and concern that I have for people, and collaborate with businesses, organizations, and government to help make our amazing community even better.
