For 40 years I have lived in Northwest B.C. and worked as a physiotherapist in private practice and as a therapist and Executive Director for the Kitimat and Terrace Child Development Centres.
My three adult children were raised in the northwest and attended the French immersion program.
I am a UBC graduate in physiotherapy and occupational therapy and hold a UNBC Masters of Science in Community Health.
I have served as president provincially and nationally on physiotherapy regulatory boards. Other boards and committees include the B.C. Medical Services Commission, community sports clubs, the ACT Telethon and taking a leadership role in evolving the telethon Society into the Kitimat Community Foundation. I take a leadership role on the Kitimat Interagency Committee, the Housing Committee and as a volunteer for the provision of a winter shelter. As a Rotarian I follow the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.
I am proud of my appointment to the Interim Governing Council to establish the University of Northern British Columbia. I continue to support UNBC by participating on the President’s Advisory Council and helping UNBC celebrate 25 years in the North.
