Joining Andrew Weaver’s Green team as a candidate for Courtenay-Comox provides opportunity to serve the community by sharing my professional expertise and personal values. My business is habitat restoration and invasive species reduction: contracts include governmental and non-governmental organizational as well as individuals throughout Vancouver Island and the Coast. I believe that we have a right to a healthy environment, strong social services, and an economy based on 21st century sustainable jobs with a strong social foundational support for everyone. After a career in logging, I earned a postsecondary education (BSc Environmental Science) Royal Roads University 2000 and a Diploma in Environmental Assessment from NIC 1999. My goal is to be the type of elected official who remains open and engaged and my focus will be issues such as water management, affordable education, sustainable jobs and access to quality health care. I expect that my years of coaching soccer also have prepared me for provincial politics. I was born on Texada Island and have lived with my family in the Comox Valley since 1981. A deep appreciation for the beauty and opportunities available in this area motivates me to represent our best aspirations for a shared sustainable future.
