Connected with Community

I have been driving community engagement and action, by connecting with people across the Cowichan region on issues we all care about over the last five years. Local water, housing, renewable energy, local food, and democracy to name a few.

As a community facilitator with One Cowichan and now Social Planning Cowichan, I have extensive experience bringing people together to host respectful discussions that allow for collaboration, new ideas and interactive decision making.

I’ve worked hard to develop leadership by encouraging others to actively participate in the community and am proud of the progress that’s been accomplished in working with different community groups, organizations, businesses, First Nations and other governments to create positive change in our communities.

I’m running because I believe I have the skills to make a good councillor. I do fact-based research to get a better understanding of an issue, I ask questions, seek and listen to different points of view with an open mind and take all of that into consideration to make good decisions and plan collaboratively.

While I have the same concerns that many of us do with the issues our communities are facing, I’m also worried about the divide that is happening. We need to learn from our different experiences and perspectives, listen to each other and work together to be able to move forward.

North Cowichan has so much potential to move ahead on these issues while still maintaining our core services to better support those who really need it. My goal is to make sure we do this with community input while also preserving our ecosystems and green space.

I am excited for the opportunity to represent the many voices I’ve heard to the council table and to work with whomever else may be elected.
