Here’s a question from a recent newspaper interview, and my answer, just in case you didn’t read said newspaper.

What previous experience do you consider an asset?

I have been elected as a Councillor for the District of Tumbler Ridge for the past two terms and have served as an alternate to the Regional District board. I currently hold an elected seat on the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM). I sit on the Public Safety and First Nations sub committees on this board. This seat is very important to the region and I am honoured to have, for my second term, been elected to this seat. I also sit on the North Central Local Government Association, a position I was elected to this past spring. I sit on the Alaska Highways board and have been actively involved in promoting tourism throughout the region. I have been involved in numerous boards within the Regional District and province, working to ensure that the North East has a strong voice provincially and federally.

I have spent the last two terms as a Councillor for the District of Tumbler Ridge, working on forming relationships that serve not just that community, but the whole northeast. I bring determination and the ability to work hard to accomplish a task. However, one of my biggest strengths is my ability to work with the people I represent—my educational background is in Social Work, Emergency Management and Victim Services. All of these jobs require the ability to listen to people and be a strong advocate.
