Why Are You Running for School Trustee?

All of our 3 children will be in elementary school this year at King George [Jacob (10, Gr. 5), Ryan (7, Gr. 2) and Jessica (4, K)].  Jacob and Ryan have ocular albinism, and are severely visually impaired, and will likely never drive.  Over the last 4 years, we have had countless meetings with OT's, vision consultants, resource teachers, counsellors and teachers.  All very special, however there have been bumps in the road and we feel changes and attention is necessary and many parents can relate.

I also bring a strong business sense to the Board.  Two successful runs in the management of corporate independent locations, doubling the outputs under my tenure.  This, combined with previous volunteer board experience (former Website Chair of the Manitoba 5-pin Bowlers Association, and former Secretary and President of the Westman 5-piin Bowlers Association), has provided me with strong decision making abilities, strong negotiation abilities, and multi-view understanding of various topics.  I enjoy numbers, budgets and risk taking, as well as caring for our children.  I volunteer coach 5-pin bowling on Saturday mornings, and aim to complete my National Coaching designation in the near future.  

If elected, I will be a strong contributor and an advocate for resources for our studens, teachers and administrators, and look forward to working with all involved.
