• October 2nd update: The new by-election date has been called! On December 12th, voters in Victoria will elect one Councillor.

    I will not be running this time.

    For many of us, our worlds have dramatically changed over the past 7 months. I must focus all my efforts within our health and care system as we are rapidly responding as best we can to concurrent public health emergencies: the COVID-19 pandemic, the opioid crisis, and all the challenges we will face through the fall and winter months.

  • March 17th: All campaign activities are suspended

    As a nurse, my mind and my heart are clear. We are in the midst of a health crisis, and likely a healthcare crisis. Now is the time for me to return to work and focus on this with my colleagues. Let’s all look out for each other, because we need each other.

    Thank you all for your support!

  • We can live in good health, support our local businesses and protect and enjoy our natural environment.

    These aren’t competing priorities.

  • Dedicated. Independent. Practical.

My Priorities

I’m running to help council refocus on what matters: making responsible decisions that will improve our health and well-being as individuals, communities, and businesses, as we care for each other and our environment. 

For the next 2.5 years, I commit to moving the City of Victoria Strategic Plan (2019-2022) responsibly and practically forward for “a bold, thriving, inclusive, and happy city that people love.” I will work for our collective Prosperity , our vital Planet, our special Places, and our healthy People.


A strong economy is linked with positive health outcomes. We are a prosperous city and yet, not all of us are prospering. We need to continue to encourage strong, diverse local and regional economies. No one gets left behind. We all need a paycheck for a good period of our lives.

Positive climate action needs us all. The City of Victoria has a bold, aggressive and thorough Climate Leadership Plan (2018). From reducing carbon emissions to improving our stormwater systems, we all need to commit and do more now, at a local level. And we need to do it together.

The way we build our city shapes our mental health and well-being. I am a healthcare professional experienced in supporting positive health outcomes for individuals and families. I understand the impact of environment - natural and man-made - on health. I will help guide our city to make the decisions needed so that our physical, built environments promote social cohesion and protect our mental health and well-being.

Nothing about you without you. Victoria is alive with opportunity and change. In speaking with residents, I've heard that it's not that we don’t like change; it's that we don’t like being left in the dark about things that are important to us.

Our healthy city, that people love

As a nurse, I deeply care for patients, clients and their families. I listen to their experiences and help them create and achieve their health goals within their community. For fifteen years, I have been their spokesperson for health. Because we all matter. We all have voices and stories that deserve to be told.

As your Councillor, you can expect no less from me. I will represent you, your story, your needs. I am an independent voice with the practical wisdom needed to make sure that intelligent decisions are made with a broad spectrum of interests in mind. We all belong in Victoria.

Regardless of age and ability, we can strive together to guide and shape our community. We can live in good health, we can support our local businesses and we can protect and enjoy our natural environment. Your voice, your values and your actions matter. We’ve got this!

I have been living, learning and playing on the territories of the Lekwungen speaking people for 15 years.
