There were at first two main factors that influenced my decision to serve as Trustee in Hanover School Division. Having children in the division, it is extremely important to me to have a voice in their education and future success. Secondly, it has always been my desire to preserve the values and standards that Hanover has been built on.

I believe that parental involvement, communication and awareness are an integral part of student success, and that we also need to ensure that each of the decisions made in our division are truly ‘about the kids’ – all the kids.

The last four years on the Board I have had the opportunity to serve on Governance, Operations, Education, and the Workplace Safety & Health Committees.

I have lived in Hanover since 1980, growing up in Steinbach. My husband Jed and I moved to Mitchell in 2005, where we are raising our 3 young boys. For the past 4 years I have been volunteering with Steinbach Community Outreach and enjoy getting involved with many local events and singing opportunities with my siblings.
