My family moved to Prince George when I was five, my father worked for Northwood and then the City of Prince George in their computer department. In 1988 I was a founding partner in Ave Maria Specialties and ran that business until 2017. I have MBA from UNBC and am a Certified Professional Business Coach. I have been active in the community as a volunteer. I have helped on the streets with the Soup Bus and St Vincent De Paul since 1986. In 2004 I was a founding member of PACHA the Peoples Action Committee for Healthy Air and I worked with industry, government, and the community to get a 40 % reduction in particulate levels and a 60 per cent reduction in odour.
My passion is to help people and having sold my business, I now have time to give back to the community in this manner.
