I am a mother of a young son, a wife, and a passionate community advocate. My family includes Barrie. I was born and raised in Barrie, and that is why we purchased our home here almost 20 years ago.
Dedicated to serving the community, I’m here to support and uplift all residents of Ward 4 with compassionate, evidence-based solutions to the challenges we all face.
Self-taught in digital marketing, I have owned small businesses and managed departments in non-profits and multinational corporations.
Currently, I serve as the Vice Chair for CARP Barrie & Area and the Co-Chair of the Seniors Community Fund for Seniors living in poverty. I am also a co-founder of Politics for Women, a non-partisan educational organization. In addition, I have helped raise more than 300,000 pounds of food for the Barrie Food Bank through grassroots initiatives.
