I live in the Parkdale area of East Hamilton with my husband Jerry and two daughters, who are students in the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board. I am an active volunteer who believes deeply in giving back to my community and supporting the youth of our City. I help run a school nutrition program, a historical interpreter at Westfield Heritage Village and I am a leader with Girl Guides of Canada.
As a Trustee I will take every opportunity to speak with parents, citizens, and staff, at all levels, in order to improve our education system. I am a strong believer that there are always opportunities for improvement to any system or program and that working together is the way to accomplish our common goals.
My top priorities are:
- Ensuring that the education needs of all students are met with programs that allow them to pursue their individual educational goals.
- Aggressively advocating to the Ministry for funding reform and a total overhaul of the ARC process.
- Accountability for taxpayer’s dollars.
