About me: I’m a long time resident of Brant County and Brantford, having lived in Brantford since the beginning of 1997 and in Paris since 2003. I’m a graduate of the University of Guelph with a Bachelor’s of Science, and I’ve attended Trent University, Mohawk College, and Toronto Metropolitan University at various points in my life.

I’m currently the product manager for Epitome Genetics, a biotechnology company based out of Kitchener, Ontario, and I ran ClOak Computers in Paris from 2018-2020. I’ve volunteered throughout the community, during the 2021 and 2022 federal and provincial elections, at Premier Martial Arts and then at United Family Martial Arts in Paris and Brantford respectively.

I am hugely passionate about this community, I’m involved in innovative new strides in our Healthcare system, I have fresh, unique ideas for how to better the County, and I have a drive to make a difference!

Mission: I have spent the vast majority of my life here in Paris, having moved here when I was 8 years old and visiting frequently when I lived in Brantford before that. I love this town of ours: kayaking in the Nith and the Grand, walking through our stunning trails, eating at our superb restaurants, and just enjoying the quiet atmosphere of the town.

In recent years, these aspects of Paris have begun to change. Our forested areas have been slowly cut down and replaced with developmental sprawl mandated by the provincial government. Our downtown now is busy, loud, and difficult to traverse either on foot or by car, and this trajectory does not seem to be reversing direction. While I understand that we are a growing community, and that there are demands from the federal and provincial governments, I refuse to believe we cannot preserve our small town charm. I believe we, and I as one of your Ward 2 councillors, can preserve what we love about our community while still advancing towards our collective future.
