My decision last year to serve as a trustee was one that was not taken lightly. My husband and I have three young boys, currently 9, 7, and 3, who were just at the beginning of their school “careers”, and education became a priority to me like never before. It matters greatly to me what they are learning, how our values are being upheld, and what opportunities are available to all children in our division. I am most excited by the thought of being able to make a positive difference for these children, and hope that their educational experience is an incredible one, enabling them to use it in the future in ways we can’t even imagine right now!

Since 2006 I spent time in many of our local communities and beyond singing with my siblings as McKenzie Road. In recent years I also began volunteering for Steinbach Community Outreach. Through these and other volunteering opportunities, I have had the pleasure of connecting with many families in our division. I look forward to making many more connections in the years to come through service on the Board.
