I am a former business person with strong links to the community through Junior Achievement BC, Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary and my neighborhood schools. I was a PAC President and spent years volunteering. I look forward to lending my experience as a former chair of the Greater Victoria School Board to the newly elected board. Two priorities for me will be “exemplary governance” and a re_examination of all aspects of the “strategic plan”. Math proficiency and success for aboriginal learners are two areas of particular concern to me. I am proud to have served with the previous board and see that there are well-qualified candidates wishing to serve.
