About Me

First off, thank you so much for taking the time to check out my page and to learn about me and my vision for Victoria. I grew up in Victoria and I want to see the people of this city thrive. 

I moved back 6 years ago, after earning a degree in History and Political Science from Concordia University.  Since returning I've dedicated myself to building community, amplifying voice, and speaking out about important issues facing our community. With your support, I hope to continue this work as a Victoria City Councillor. 

My full time day job entails raising funds and awareness for heart disease and stroke research. On the side, I run two successful youth empowerment programs, sit on the board of the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition, and perform poetry around the city. I thrive on meeting people, problem solving, and working to make our city more vibrant and livable. I see running for Victoria City Council as a natural next step that is consistent with my passion for community-minded organizing.

In Victoria, I am known best for two things:

1. Creating spaces and platforms for people’s voices to be heard. I founded the Victorious Voices Youth Arts Festival and the City of Victoria Youth Poet Laureate project. Both of these programs give youth opportunities to be heard by their peers and community leaders.

2. Speaking out about important issues even when it is difficult. Whether the issue is gender violence, dangerous pipelines, poverty, or food security, I have consistently advocated for safer, fairer and more sustainable communities.

These are qualities I will bring to City Council. I will create platforms for your voice to be heard and establish new avenues to educate Victorians about what is happening at City Hall. I will also continue to speak out about important issues facing our community and ask tough questions in order to make the best decisions for Victorians today.

Those who have worked closely with me know that I believe in the power of working collaboratively. Regardless of the task, I bring people together, listen to all sides, and think creatively to get the job done. I believe I have the experience, leadership, and common sense that it takes to be effective on City Council.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my vision for the city and for taking an interest in Victoria municipal politics. I hope I can count on your vote on November 15th. 

If you have any questions or if you’d like to learn more in person please get in touch. During the campaign and as your Councillor, I will be available to chat and to listen.
