Skills/interests of ED and/or designate (if applicable)

About me! I grew up in a small village outside of Ottawa on a hobby farm. After graduating high school, I studied English at McGill University in Montreal, before transferring to the University of Colorado in Boulder, where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism.


I worked in the television industry in Colorado for almost 25 years before returning to Canada.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my very fluffy cat Sullivan, skiing, running, paddle-boarding, learning the painful sport of mountain biking, and exploring beautiful Vancouver Island!
