Service Highlights

I’ve consistently advocated for community goals and sustainable industry best practices. Preserving the environment has always been at the heart of all my efforts.

I brought those values to my four decades as a construction trade and economic development association executive, to multiple other business and community leadership positions, and when I established BC Green Chamber of Commerce.

I am determined to work for a government that is serious about making our economy green and fair, protects our democracy, and creates a secure future by preserving a livable environment.
