I started my career in 2004 at Island Health as a newly, UBC graduated Registered Nurse working at Royal Jubilee Hospital, on the Oncology and General Medicine Unit. I love being a nurse because I love working with people and for people. I came to understand the complexity of providing the right care to the right patients in the right way.
I have held multiple leadership positions at Island Health in both clinical and corporate operations. Through these opportunities I am able to inspire high-functioning, interprofessional teams to continually implement creative solutions that both supported patient and staff wellness and build organizational capacity in evidence-informed care.
In my current position, I support workplace learning at Island Health. I provide leadership and expertise in creating systems and structures that support continuous learning. I excel at bringing internal and external experts together, from all sectors, to create comprehensive and organized supports for staff and physicians.
Wife & Mother
I’ve been married for 6 years to my beautiful wife, Jill. We have a 3 year-old daughter, Poppy. I am so proud to be part of a community and country that supports LGBTQ2+ rights and families.
I am so humbled by all my friends who are stepping up and supporting me on my campaign and I look forward to introducing you to them when I’m canvassing. Be sure to come up and say hello to us!
Through my time volunteering with the local Surfrider Chapter, I engage with local leaders, municipalities, businesses and industry to help lead our team of volunteers to find solutions to complex issues.
Over the past five years I have helped lead programs and campaigns related to protecting coastlines, reducing plastic pollution and improving water quality in our region. This is our time to support one another as we transition to a low-carbon economy and demonstrate how sustainable practices are also profitable!
Surfer and Runner
Being in nature is my happy place. To be able to live in a city where we can access natural ecosystems within minutes is a place I will always call home. Whether I am surfing, running, or playing in the forest with my daughter, I realize how good health is largely influenced by our connection to nature.
