Long before I was elected, I was doing the work of a trustee. Prior to my election, I passionately served on school councils for over twelve years. During that time, I wrote a community schools newsletter, co-chaired the $125,000 auditorium renewal at Burlington Central High School, was a participating member in the playground renewal at Lakeshore Public School, and helped students make healthy choices through the Healthy Snack program and the Halton Food for Thought program. Outside of the school board, I have a long history of community volunteerism. I have contributed to the Join the J campaign, worked security at the Rotary Ribfest, and am a supporter of YMCA Strong Kids.
