As a long-time advocate for students with unique learning needs I have witnessed how the Burnaby School District responds to concerns from parents. I’m retired after a career as a public relations practitioner, including eight years at Metro Vancouver leading waste reduction campaigns.
Having attended numerous District budget meetings, I’ve seen the positive influence the Burnaby Citizens Association has had on the decision-making processes at the School District; and how the unique relationship with the city allowed the district to withstand years of provincial cuts.
I currently sit on Burnaby's Sustainable City Advisory Committee and have also served on the Traffic Safety, Transportation and Environment Committees. Strengths I would bring to the Board of Education include project management skills, a history of community advocacy and a passion for public education.
With your support I will work tirelessly to build on the significant successes of our District.
