I was born and raised in Ladysmith and now raising my family. I have worked for Black Press for 7 years. I am very community oriented and take great pride in my community. I have been a member of the Ladysmith Festival of Lights for over 25 years at which I held a directors position. I was a member of the Ladysmith Ambassador Committee as well as the Tour de Rock. I was fundraiser coordinator for Ladysmith Pre School, Ladysmith Primary School and the Rhythm Dance Academy Performing Company. I look forward to serving our community for several years to come.
With a keen interest in technology, I have spent the last 10 years working in business development primarily focusing on digital advertising, marketing, social media, reputation management and digital information management systems. Some of the well known tech companies I have worked for, that may warrant mention, are Xerox and Apple. Working in business development has allowed me to travel to some very remote places in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. I am very excited to bring my energy and experience in business development to be a part of your success. Let’s start the conversation!
