I have lived, worked and raised my family in Centre Wellington, active in the community in many ways.
When my three children were young I coached FEDS TimBits soccer, sat on the Board of the Elora Cooperative preschool and completed my Master’s degree in Education at the University of Toronto. I have been a teacher at Centre Wellington District High School for more than 20 years and have written for numerous education publications including TVO, CBC and Education Forum. More recently I created Renegade Rainbows, co-founded the CW Community Dinner Project, and collaborated on the Hate Has No Home Here sign campaign.
I was elected to Wellington County Council in 2018 (Ward 6), served on the Ontario College of Teachers 8th Council, and chaired the Finance and Audit Committee. I currently hold a committee position with the College of Nurses of Ontario and sit on the Board of the United Way of Guelph-Wellington-Dufferin.
My contributions have always focused on “how can I help make our community an even better place to live?”
