My training as a teacher has helped me to develop the ability to see potential in students.  I see this skill as very useful when thinking of Saanich.  I believe we have the potential to be the greatest community in Canada to live in.  We just need to tap into the our greatest resource; the citizens of Saanich.

Every successful organization needs an injection of new ideas and energy periodically in order to stay relevant and vital.  I believe Saanich council needs this injection of new voices in the election of 2014.  I would like to be a new councillor that brings energy, humility, and a desire to connect with and serve residents on Saanich council.

What is your campaign slogan or guiding principle?

“Let’s make Saanich the greatest and greenest place to live in Canada.”
