I have a nursing and an education degree, and a masters in Leadership, and have worked as a school teacher for many years, instructing children from pre-school to junior high. Currently, I teach students in the University of Alberta’s education degree program at Faculty St. Jean, the university’s French campus.
Over the last decade, I have been actively involved as an executive in a number of non-profit organizations, advocating for language learning and women in leadership. Being the voice of my community is part of my daily life, and I have used that voice to co-host a weekly radio show on a local Francophone community radio station (Radio Cité). My voice and actions align with the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion. My goal is to build community and advocate for ways to bring more people into the democratic process. My aim in running for school trustee is to bring new and fresh ideas for the betterment of our school district.
I STAND FOR
MY TOP 4 PRIORITIES
