I was first elected Canadian Rockies Regional School Division #12 (CRPS) trustee (Canmore Ward) in 2004 and was acclaimed for a second term in 2007. I was just re-elected to serve another three years.
Both my children were born in Canmore and attended K -12 in CRSD, French Immersion. For the past three years I served as vice-chair of the board. Alberta Government support to the CRPS Inspiring Hearts & Minds initiative created opportunities for provincial, national and international outreach.
In the past I held positions on the Canmore Daycare Board, the preschool board, and various school councils/PACs; I served as president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French for five years and sat on the provincial board for two. I currently sit on the board of the Canmore Folk Music Festival, work full time at an events management firm and edit, copy-edit and proofread on contract.
My husband and I ran a small business for 19 years: supply and install floor wall and window coverings.
