ABOUT ME

 

I’m proud to have served on Edmonton City Council since 2017 as the City Councillor for Ward 5. Edmonton’s history as a humble, hardworking and creative city drives my work to preserve our core services, find innovation across government, and empower our businesses and residents to succeed. As we’ve navigated the COVID-19 pandemic together, we’ve seen firsthand how inclusion, safety and resiliency are vital to the long-term success of our city – which need to be addressed as part of all decisions City Council makes to ensure Edmonton can continue to be prosperous.

Since my election, I’m pleased to have undertaken roles on the Edmonton Police Commission, River Valley Alliance, REACH Council for Safe Communities, as well as  served a term as Chair of the Community and Public Services Committee, and Vice-Chair of Council Services Committee, and Vice-Chair of the City Manager Recruitment Committee. From 2018-2020, I represented the City of Edmonton on the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) Safe and Healthy Communities Committee. I’ve also served as Council Advisor on the City Design, Indigenous Relations, and Arts and Culture Initiatives. Taking on these varied roles and responsibilities as a Councillor has allowed me to understand the complexities that make Edmonton unique, realize efficiencies in our local government and find solutions to long-standing challenges in our communities.

 

Born and raised in west Edmonton, my optimism for our city continues to grow – I’ve chosen Edmonton to raise my family and look forward to continuing to serve my community. I am a graduate of the University of Alberta and attained a Master of Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 

 

Prior to my time as a City Councillor, I was an entrepreneur, educator and worked in various orders of government. My partner Nick and I enjoy spending time exploring our beautiful river valley -- by foot, bike and, occasionally, canoe.
