Bio: As a born and raised British Columbian, I feel a responsibility to contribute to the economic and environmental sustainability of this beautiful, diverse Province. I have spent the majority of my life in Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast, raising 3 children with my partner. I feel that the skills I have gained from 16 years as a legal assistant, 11 years operating my independent mortgage brokerage company and my position as President of the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce will lend well to getting the BC Green Party ready for success in 2017. I have held the position of Secretary for the BC Green Party for the last year and would love the chance to continue. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the high calibre, talented, business minded and organized people on the Council. I am so proud to be part of the BC Green Party. I truly believe that we are the party of the future. We have the answer to creating and sustaining an economically vibrant Province, without sacrificing our most precious resources and the natural BC beauty that makes us special.
Why should you feel confident in voting for me to be the Secretary of the Provincial Council for the Green Party of BC?
Although I am relatively “new” to provincial politics, I feel that the skills I have gained from 16 years as a legal assistant, 11 years operating an independent mortgage brokerage company and my position as President of the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce will lend well to the Secretary position. I have held the position of Secretary for the Green Party of BC for the past year and would love the chance to continue. I have worked on one successful Municipal campaign and was an intervener in the BC Hydro “Smart Meter Choices” Program application to the BC Utility Commission. I am also registered as a commenter with the National Energy Board relating to the Kinder Morgan pipeline project (although have lost faith that it will have much effect). I have drafted policy for the BC Chamber calling on the provincial government to unfreeze the carbon tax and create incentives to attract and sustain renewable energy projects in BC. All-in-all, now that my children are grown and independent, I have the time to contribute to being actively engaged in my community, province and country.
