About Me

I have lived in Sidney with my husband since 2010, following our jobs up the peninsula. We loved what Sidney offered for raising a family, and bought a house in north Sidney soon after we arrived - we were immediately welcomed by neighbours and knew we'd made a great decision.

For over 10 years, I worked as an environmental consultant, creating reclamation plans and conducting environmental assessments for mining and oil and gas projects. I am a Professional Agrologist (P.Ag.) with the BC Institute of Agrology with a B.Sc. in Agroecology from UBC (2004), and an M.Sc. in Environmental Studies from UVic (2011). 

In 2017, I started a home-based bicycle rental business, Here by Cycle, to stay home with my 2 children and get more involved in the community. I joined the Board of the Sidney Community Association, and helped found Sidney’s Cycling Without Age Society, a non-profit affiliate of an international movement to provide bicycle rides to elderly and disabled community members.

I am interested in leaping into municipal politics to use my professional skills and community spirit to help the Town make decisions guided by evidence and productive public engagement. I care strongly about empowering civic participation, and focusing on building a community that will let citizens of all ages and walks of life thrive in our rapidly changing world.
