I grew up in rural Southern Alberta in a strong Catholic farm family with five brothers and sisters. I learned the value of hard work, community, and faith. Family, giving of yourself, sharing your gifts, and being an active citizen are part of who I am and what I will bring to my role as a School Trustee.
I have been a resident of Calgary and Chestermere for the past 20 years. My husband and I have two sons both educated in the Calgary Catholic School District. Our youngest is currently in grade 11 and our eldest started his first year at the University of Calgary.
Education is my passion. I have been involved in education for 14 years as an active parent volunteer, School Council Chair, facilitator for Alberta School Councils’ Association, and volunteer for Junior Achievement. I have worked hard for Alberta Education and Calgary Catholic initiatives. I am a strong advocate for education where children can learn in an environment where they can live and model their Catholic faith. I believe that as an ethical citizen it is my responsibility to be involved and give back. I have the DESIRE, PASSION, and TIME to commit to be an effective Calgary Catholic Trustee.
I am a professional with over 25 years in Information Technology. I will bring strong skills in communication, leadership, and fiscal responsibility to the board table. I have always been a caring leader in my work, school, and community. If elected I will be a dynamic school trustee.
