As a professional artist, I learned to recognise and appreciate beauty. As a teacher, I became a creative thinker and communicator. I have found effective ways to reach a variety of people.
When a pellet plant was proposed for our village, I became a leader. I listened to the proposal, asked questions about the company and their track record, wrote numerous letters, aligned myself with citizens who had similar concerns and together, found a way to stop it.
I believe in open, inclusive government and I am committed to protecting and promoting the unique beauty of our village.
