Foothills County



I want to thank everyone in Division 3 who took the time to vote.

Thank you to the other 3 candidates for stepping up to run.

A huge thank you to my volunteers who went door knocking with me, helped put up signs, and phoned and reminded voters to get to the polls.

Thank you to all!!!


Experience - Commitment - Representation


I have lived and volunteered in the Millarville area for over 40 years. All of us who live here know how special this area is. We want a say in what happens here. We need a representative who is available to listen and get things done.

I was the Division 3 Councillor for two terms. Since then, I have been adding to my experience by being a board member on the Alberta Surface Rights and Land Compensation Boards, as a Constituency Assistant in the office of John Barlow, Member of Parliament for Foothills, and as a Constituency Assistant in the office of RJ Sigurdson, Member of the Legislative Assembly for Highwood.

These experiences have given me extensive knowledge of the Provincial and Federal levels of government. This is an invaluable asset when dealing with Municipal issues.


Current Issues

  • Representation for Division 3

  • Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB)

  • Rural Crime

  • Water

  • Traffic Safety on Rural Roads

  • Red tape Reduction


I have experience with many boards and committees as a volunteer in the community. I am very involved with the Millarville Racing and Agricultural Society (MRAS) as a former member of the Board of Directors.

I have also been a long-time volunteer on many committees and events including the Half Marathon, Millarville Races, Priddis & Millarville Fair Committee, Millarville Rodeo Committee, and Kids Only Shoppe at the Millarville Christmas Market. As a former teacher, my personal favourite is judging the 4H public speaking.

When I am not volunteering and helping with community issues, I enjoy gardening, birdwatching, reading, and looking after my horses.

Please contact me with any questions, comments, or issues you would like to discuss. I look forward to representing you in Division 3!
