Cyndy was born and raised in Winnipeg.  Following her graduation from Mennonite Collegiate Institute in 1979, she attended Red River College where she completed her Business Administration Diploma.  Her 17 year career with a crown corporation has given her valuable experience and extensive knowledge in human resources.  She has resided in Steinbach since 1992 along with her husband Daryl and their 2 sons.

Becoming a trustee was a natural progression for Cyndy.  Once her children entered the public school system, she became an active parent volunteer. During the span of 13 years, this included volunteering in their classrooms, chaperoning field trips, coaching volleyball and soccer and being a long standing member on parent council.

She was first elected to the Hanover School Division board in October 2006 and was re-elected in 2010 and 2014.  Throughout her time on the board, she has been a strong advocate for all students.  Her intention is to make a difference for all students and is a firm believer that public school education should provide every child with an equal opportunity to fulfill their potential regardless of personal circumstances.

Cyndy is an active member in the community and currently serves as a volunteer board member of Eastman Crisis Center (Agape House).  She is also a member of the 2016 Manitoba Summer Games committee.

A lifelong volunteer, she has given her energy and commitment to organizations such as Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life, MS Walk, Block Parent and Canadian Diabetes.
