Just a little information about myself.

Having been born and raised in Timmins, I’ve lived in Ward 5 all of my life, and what matters to the residents of Ward 5 is also what matters to me!

I went to school in Timmins, graduated from Northern College and worked in Downtown Timmins which is the heart of Ward 5. I was the Director of one of Ward 5’s largest employers (TeleTech) and like many of my neighbours I’ve had to deal with the loss of my job and have started from scratch to re-build my place in the community. I now ask you to join with me on this new challenge for Timmins, to rebuild the parts of our community that were devastated by the closure of the Xstrata Met Site and the departure of Teletech and other businesses and make Ward 5 the vibrant place it once was and that it should still be.

Now for politics.

In 2000, after several years of participating on the boards for several not-for-profits that are at the very soul of our community, I decided that the time was right for me to take the next step and put my name forward to represent my friends and neighbours as a Councillor for Ward 5.

With your support, I had the honour and privilege to be at the Council table for six years that were filled with some of the most rewarding and challenging moments of my life. Although proud of the many projects that were developed during my years on Council, it was the everyday moments when I could help one of my Ward 5 neighbours with an issue or a concern that made being a Councillor the most rewarding.

Now four years later, as our community and our ward face one of the more difficult periods in our history, I have the honour of once again representing your voice at the Council table.

I am here to listen to you and help our community find solutions to our issues and I want to be part of leading our community to a prosperous future.
