Local, Provincial and Federal Government experience, Leadership Skills, Dedication and Desire!

Powell River Priorities

These are four of my priorities; see more on the Priorities page


Council needs to review options for keeping City taxes under control.  


Powell River needs a City Housing Authority, managed by citizens…

Name Change

Continuing education on name change.

Keep Our City Safe

Consulting residents and agencies to create solutions


Your mayor needs the skill to effectively run a meeting. This requires maintaining control, observing protocol and ensuring everyone has the opportunity to be heard. I have garnered these skills through the many boards I have sat on. Some of these include :

  • BC Legal Services Board
  • Powell RIver Civil Liberties
  • Sunset Homes Society
  • Brain Injury Society
  • Myrtle Point Golf Course
  • Source Club Society (provides services to those living with mental illness)

Long time resident of Powell River with 14 years on City Council, I love to call Powell River home.

For fourteen years I have enjoyed serving the citizens of Powell River as a City Councillor. I have acquired skills and experience to lead the team as your Mayor.

Having worked for all three levels of government, I have significant knowledge of the inner workings of federal, provincial and municipal governments. I have owned and operated a couple of small businesses.

In my work at Legal Aid I often liased with agencies such as WorkSafe BC, Social Services and the Residential Tenancy Branch. I represented individuals detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act and developed a keen interest in mental health. This work was extremely rewarding.

Many years working with MLA Nicholas Simons taught me the skills necessary to work my way through the bureaucracy of the Provincial Governernment – a useful skill for a Mayor.

I am a lifelong learner, having studied business administration, law and social work at the University level. I continue to learn through local government webinars.
