Why Are You Running for City Council?

I was born and raised in Brandon, and have dedicated my career to helping advance solutions for social problems in our community.

I have a background in community engagement, teaching, and practice on food security and policy issues, including three years developing and now leading the Brandon Food Council as Chair. I am taking the Masters in Business Administration for Community Economic Development at Cape Breton University, and am a Planning and Policy Analyst at University College of the North's Centre for Aboriginal Language and Culture.  I am also an active member of the community and on grants and review committees including the Rural and Remote Homelessness Advisory Board, Assiniboine Community MICA Program Advisory Committee and volunteer projects including Incredible Edible Route.

Brandon is a wonderful place to raise a family, and I chose this city to be my home and to raise my two young children.  My work and passion for community building extend beyond meeting basic needs, to create a healthy and thriving community for all to enjoy, now and in the future.
