I made the decision to run in this election as I believe this is a critical time for the City of Guelph. In this post-pandemic phase we need to Recover, Revive & Thrive. Guelph is a great city and I have the skills to help our community achieve incredible things. The City of Guelph has great potential; and I want to continue to build on the great work of previous Councils. I also want to ensure that we utilize all our resources to make our city the best it can be.
I have 18 years of Municipal Government experience working at the County of Wellington. During my time at the County I have been exposed to all facets of municipal government including; public works, social services, long term care, safe communities, solid waste services, mental health, economic development, finance, climate change and libraries just to name a few. I am acutely aware of the issues facing municipalities today and will be educating myself further on these issues at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario Conference this summer. I am an active member of the Patient and Family Advisory Committee at the Guelph General Hospital; I am also a Registered Nurse who worked on a surgical unit at St. Joseph's Hospital for 13 years prior to joining the County of Wellington.
I have dedicated my life to serving the residents of Guelph & Wellington County and as a member of City Council I would continue to serve the residents of not only Ward 3 but all of Guelph.
