 I believe all Albertans deserve strong public education, safe health care, and a sustainable, diversified economy. 


Glenmore needs a representative with the experience and proven commitment to beat the UCP in the next election.

  • Experience:
    • I have deep roots in Calgary Glenmore. I am raising my family here and have spent years getting to know my community and my neighbours.
    • Politically I have managed campaigns at all levels of government. I am proud of the capacity building and mentorship I have been able to share with teams all over the city. 
    • As a communications professional I have worked in industry and government to support major infrastructure and social policy projects all over the world. 
  • Commitment:
    • I am a change maker who has advocated for strong public transit, supporting victims of domestic abuse, and rallying for our public education system.
    • I have been a member of the Alberta NDP for 14 years and had the honour of working for Rachel Notley when she was Premier. 
    • As the past president of the Glenmore NDP Constituency Association, I have been here in Glenmore for years working hard to make sure we are ready to beat the UCP. 
  • Leadership:
    • Serving my second term as the President of the Braeside Community Association. 
    • Co-founded the not-for-profit Look Forward Calgary.
    • Past board member of SOS Alberta, Equal Voice Calgary, and founder of I Love YYC Transit.


I am running because Calgary Glenmore is my home and I want to build a future for my community and my kids that is innovative, sustainable, and fair. Families in my community need hope and to know that things will get better.


I know my neighbourhood and I see every day how families are struggling and the opportunities that exist to rebuild after the pandemic. 

I believe we need experienced candidates running in Calgary- to beat the UCP and then to lead a strong government. I have the political and professional experience to be a steady hand during the campaign and in caucus.

I will run a strong, ambitious campaign and flip Glenmore.

As a person from a settler background, it’s important for me to acknowledge that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta. In Glenmore we benefit from being neighbours to the Tsuut’ina Nation and their vibrant community.
