Service, leadership, and a commitment to do what is right. I am all-in for Calgarians. I made the decision to run so we can shape our future in a way that we can all be proud of. Now is the time to reinvigorate city council, and put plans into action to achieve results. I pride myself in not only listening to the perspectives in the room, but truly hearing them. I will respect what others are saying and find common ground to negotiate a path forward. As a small business owner and general manager, I know what it takes to plan, budget, make tough decisions and pivot when necessary. Calgarians are looking for leadership to steer our city towards a clear vision for a prosperous and sustainable future. I am certain that my drive and enthusiasm is what Ward 7 needs, and I am asking for your support to run for Councillor on October 18, 2021.

To me, Calgary is the biggest small town in Canada – in a city of 1.3 million people you can be anywhere at any time and see someone you know. We are a city that moves, whether you are floating the Bow, taking the train to a Flames game, or biking across the Peace Bridge, Calgarians are always moving forward. We are a diverse population that is known to come together to support and lift each other up. We are resilient, hard working, and we do what is right, even if it means shoveling your grumpy neighbour’s walk. I love that we are a young city, but one that remembers its past. We write our identity into our road names and honour the First Nations from Treaty 7. Calgary is my home, and it is important to say that because if you were born here like I was, or moved here last week, you are a part of something special.
