Maintain Strong Leadership in Public Education

I believe education is the basis for all positive change.

It has been an honour to serve the constituents of Ward D and to represent families on the Edmonton Public School Board for the past four years. I look forward to continuing to serve as your strong voice defending public education.

My husband and I have lived in Ward D for more than 15 years. We have two children, both EPSB students. I’ve lived in small towns and big cities across Canada, in my work as a journalist, and it is Edmonton’s sense of community and our passion for helping others that makes me proud to call this city home.

I am running again to be your School Board Trustee because I believe strongly in the value of public education. Education matters. Our kids matter. And our communities are connected by the schools that bring kids and families together.


Getting things done requires creativity, collaboration, transparency and accountability. If re-elected I will continue to host regular Trustee Town Halls to hear directly from parents on issues that matter to them. At present I see three key areas of focus for the next four-year term of the Edmonton Public School Board. I will focus on advocating for significant changes to the current K-6 curriculum. I will work hard to ensure the necessary supports and funding are in place for students as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. I will work with and hold EPSB Administration accountable on key policies such as the Anti-Racism and Equity Policy, the First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education Policy and a recent motion to take steps to do our part as a school division on climate change.

I believe education is the basis for all positive change.
