Biography

While I may not have been born here, I was absolutely raised here. I attended both elementary and secondary school out in Westsyde but I’ve lived in almost all areas of our beautiful city.
Watching our city grow and change has been both mind blowing and amazing to see, and it’s just made my love for Kamloops that much stronger.
I have a strong background in sales, office administration; and my husband and I own a local microbrewery where I manage the front of house and all the things going on with that.
I’m on the Board for the Kamloops Community Football Society, and am pretty active in all the sports my kids do.
I have been married to my husband for 16 years, and we are raising a pair of pretty great twins.

At any point, I strongly believe all jobs should be sourced and manned locally before being put out for tender and bringing in workforce from out of town.

What are the top three critical issues facing your community?

The Opioid Crisis is impacting our community in all areas. We have to work together instead of relying on outside programs that clearly are not working.
The housing crisis- much like opioids has huge issues all across our wonderful city- from affordability to even not having enough rentals in general.
