I'm a long-time resident of the city of Kamloops, choosing to move here in 2001 over other cities because I recognized the opportunities this community would have for both myself and my son.
I attended the University College of the Cariboo and Thompson Rivers University earning undergraduate degrees in both journalism, and ecology and a Master's degree in environmental science with a focus on policy and planning. I also have a graduate certificate in leadership from Royal Roads University and am a small business owner providing communications and capacity-building support to a variety of sectors.
As a young single mother, I accessed many services, including low-income housing. Without the support from this community, I wouldn't be as accomplished as I am today.
I'm running for Mayor to be in service to the people in this community that gave my family the opportunity to succeed. People like you.
