I am a mother to three children, a teen lady and twin boys. We are bilingual (French and English). I am also a student at Conestoga College. In 2009, I earned a certificate in information technology. I again returned to school in 2016, obtained my bookkeeping certificate with honours, and later transferred into their three year business administration accounting diploma. I am expecting to graduate from this program next year; I am taking this fall semester off so I can focus on my election campaign. In addition to my education, I bring a multitude of business, technological and accounting experience to this position.
Like many residents in our area, I have experienced poverty on many levels. I know many of the issues our community faces firsthand. I have made use of many of the local resources to aid in maintaining my family as my children have aged. I am familiar with local agencies and what they offer through this firsthand experience.
I have been an active advocate with the Alliance Against Poverty since 2015 where I actively work to eliminate the stigmas that are often attached to people and groups with lower incomes.
I believe that we need to include everyone as we grow as a city and as a region. By voting for me we gain not only the benefits of the personal experience I bring to the table, but the strength of a woman, who knows the struggle is real … I always get back up and rise again. I will continue to apply my determination and “grit” to all I do. I am compassionate, capable and intelligent. I face adversity when needed and will not back down from taking the necessary steps to effect change in our community when required.
