“There is no doubt we are going through some trying and unprecedented times in our community. I chose to run for Ward 1 Councilor to be a voice for our children, families, and seniors. My goal is to make sure our community is clean, safe, and united.”

MY BACKGROUND – Growing up in the County of Strathcona has been a blessing for me and my family. I’ve spent my life here in the county and since 2009 Sherwood Park has been my home. I am married with a daughter and stepson.

My real estate career spans 20 years with the same Company, and same Brokerage – Royal LePage. As such I would bring stability, ingenuity, creativity, and a voice of common sense, and a fair approach to the council chambers and in representing my constituents. I am a member in good standing with the Realtors Association and sat on the Member Services Committee for the Realtors Association of Edmonton. I also Co-Chaired the Realtors Community Foundation and helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the less fortunate. In my tenure as a Realtor, I have won awards consistently every year as a top achiever.

I care deeply about our community and want to represent the constituents of Ward 1 to the best of my ability. I will serve fairly and do the research necessary to make proper decisions using common sense to achieve positive results. I’m not the type to stay the course on bad decisions and I will admit my mistakes. If elected, I would be honoured to serve our great community!

In my spare time, I love to be outdoors, I play the drums in a band, and love music, campfires, camping and classic cars.
