I am running as an Independent Candidate for the School Board because I am committed to being an active listener in the community and a collaborator at the S040 table. I have been involved in our community since our family made New West our home. I'm currently the PAC treasurer at my child's elementary school, volunteer for the walking school bus and work at the Massey Theatre. With a background in Early Childhood Education, the Arts and as a parent of a young student, I am passionate about elevating our school system to further support students, caregivers and educators. We must first solidify inclusive, safe, and equitable access to education that benefits every child, so that we can grow stronger as an education system and as a community. My goals as a Trustee will mirror my goals as a parent - to listen, support and communicate each and every day.
