I first became a Trustee in 1995. I wanted to serve my community by helping to make a difference in the lives of the students and families who attend Red Deer Public Schools. I believe that every child has the potential to find their own path to success. Schools are a place where that should happen. They are places to prepare our future citizens to live and work in a democratic society, that respects all, encourages all, and values all.
My priority is to reflect what our community values about public education. I am elected to represent the citizens of Red Deer as I sit and make decisions about how public education will look. I believe that literacy and numeracy are of primary importance. They build a strong foundation for every student. Respecting the individual needs of each student who comes to us is also a priority.
In addition to being a Trustee with Red Deer Public Schools for the last 22 years, I have also worked as a graphic designer for a locally owned and operated printing company.
I have been married to my husband John for 41 years, and we have lived in North Red Deer all that time. We have raised three daughters, and are currently enjoying our five grandchildren.
