Welcome to my Website!
I am proud to serve as volunteer chairperson and lead organizer of the city`s largest event. As one of the co-founders seven years ago, it has been a real pleasure to watch this event grow from a parking lot show to the extravaganza it is today sporting over 500 cars and 50,000 spectators on the streets of downtown Port Coquitlam.
I have been involved in lacrosse since the age of seven. At fourteen I began coaching and currently I am a part of the coaching staff for the Female Junior team on which two of my daughters play. I have also been on the executive of Poco Minor Lacrosse for the past three years serving the first two in the capacity of Head Coach and this year I have moved into the position of Head of Promotions for the association.

Over the past year I have spoken to hundreds of Poco residents asking what they expect for their tax dollar. Their overwhelming response was wanting to see city hall get “Back to the Basics” and provide the core services they desire. It was also made very clear that this should be done within the confines of the current budget.
Here are the top responses from those citizens:
1. SPEND MORE ON THE ROADS
2. BUILD MORE RECREATION FACILITIES, FIELDS AND PARKS
3. CLEAN UP THE CITY AND MAKE IT SAFER
4. RETURN TO WEEKLY GARBAGE PICKUP
These are issues that I agree should be addressed at city hall. It’s time we return to providing the core services and infrastructure the citizens of Port Coquitlam expect from their tax dollars. Taxes are set to rise by as much as 5% per year for the next five years which means a potential increase of 25% with no major capital projects or increased services planned in this same time period. I intend to make sure these issues become high priority and the projects and services that matter most to the citizens of this city don’t fall on deaf ears. It is high time to remind city staff who their customers are...
The Citizens of Port Coquitlam!
