I have a life long love of learning.
In 1984, I went to the University of Ottawa. Four very fun years later, I received my Honours degree in Economics then promptly moved to the West Coast. After several years working in Vancouver, I headed back to school at Simon Fraser University and pursued my Masters Degree In Publishing. After graduating in 1999, I promptly moved to Salmon Arm.
Learning, whether it be formal education or personal life experience is the most valuable problem solving skill. I’m not afraid to ask questions or admit that I don’t know what I don’t know. I’m infinitely curious and motivated to do the research and find the answers. This curiousity has served me well and has helped me to become a quick study.
As a second term on Councillor, I have hands-on experience in the complexities and formalities of city decision making and am grateful for the opportunity. Not a week goes by that I am not awed by the talent and good will in this city.
We’re a growing and we have a bright future. And that’s down to the learning and the working that you do as community members. I appreciate your time and talent and look forward to four more years of recognizing and representing that to our community as well as our regional, provincial and national partners.
