MUNICIPALITY: Woolwich / Wellesley
I am proud to serve the Woolwich and Wellesley communities as your trustee at the Waterloo Region District School Board. It is my belief that students in the WRDSB deserve the best education and experience we can possibly give them. We need to not only provide education in core subjects, but teach them to better understand the world around them. They deserve a safe and inclusive environment to learn, and access to every resource we can offer. As an active member of my children’s school council and regular classroom volunteer, I see teachers, staff and students working together. I see occasional struggles and I see inspiring moments. 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’m a regular volunteer with The Business Education Partnership, KW Multicultural Centre and a member of Equal Voice Waterloo Region.
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. 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 pyjamas.
