I am a proud life-long Yellowknifer, having lived here since I was six years old. After studying political science for two years at the University of British Columbia, I moved back north and completed my diploma in Environment and Natural Resources Technology at Aurora College in Fort Smith.
Since 2011 I have been employed as a regulatory specialist at the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board. I have served on Yellowknife City Council since I was elected in 2015.
On top of my work, I am currently a distance student at Royal Roads University, working towards a master's degree in conflict analysis and management. Through the program, I have taken courses on organizational structure and change management, leadership, and I have researched council-administration relations with the goal of better understanding how to help council and administration work together in achieving council's goals.
My vested interest in the future of Yellowknife as a thriving community is primarily what led me to run for council, and now for re-election. I want to continue to be a part of making this city a great place to live now, and for future generations.
