I grew up in Halifax and have lived in District 10 for more than 35 years. I went to Halifax West High School and have degrees from NSCAD and the University of King’s College. Before being elected councillor I had a varied career in media, government and in environmental conservation. I was a reporter for many years with CBC Halifax and later served as assistant to the Nova Scotia Ministers of Finance and Health.
I’ve also worked in communications positions at Dalhousie University and the Nature Conservancy of Canada. In addition to serving on HRM Regional council I’m a member of Halifax and West Community Council, Finance and Audit Committee, Environment and Sustainability Committee, Executive Standing Committee and Special Events Committee. I also serve as a board member of the Centennial Arena and Canada Games Centre.
I live in Clayton Park with my husband, daughter and extended family.
