Since 2018 I have served this community as a Trustee with The Waterloo Region District School Board. It has been my pleasure to work with community and families in a meaningful way. I am proud of the work I've been able to do with my partners at the board table and at the committee level. Equitable public education has the ability to change lives.
I'm a small business owner in Elmira where I live with my family. I work as a professional photographer and I photograph children and the people who love them. I also collaborate with small businesses to create photographs that connect with their customers. I'm a student, life-long learner and advocate for equity and sovereignty.
I'm both a fundraiser and volunteer for Kate's Kause - a charitable organization committed to Angelman Syndrome awareness and inclusive community projects. I am the proud aunt of Kate, who inspires me with her strength, voice, and her focus on enjoying life -something we all could use more of.
I have volunteered with The Business Education Partnership, where I get the pleasure to speak to high school students about my work with children as a photographer, about business, and share & explore career opportunities. I also work with the KW Multicultural Centre as a volunteer in their Conversational English Program.
In my free time I enjoy cycling, reading, and meeting & collaborating with new people. I love spending time with my husband and three children. We enjoy getting muddy on outdoor adventures, riding our bikes in the beautiful, rural communities of Woolwich and Wellesley, and watching movies together while cuddling in our pajamas.
Please reach out to me. I want to hear what you have to say about how we can make our communities great places to live.
