I was born and raised in rural Alberta and have lived in Saskatoon and area for the past 17 years, raising both of my children here. I have lived in the Saskatoon Fairview constituency for 10 years.
Politics has always been my passion, and my conservative roots run deep. I supported the Reform Party federally in the 1990's, and was a founding member of the Alberta First Party in 1999. I ran as a candidate for Alberta First in the 2001 Provincial Election and served as Party President until my move to Saskatchewan in 2003. I was briefly a member of the Western Independence Party of Saskatchewan and joined the Sask Party during their last leadership race. The Sask Party showed themselves to be neither democratic nor conservative which caused me to leave the party. After meeting Ken Grey and realizing that he really is a true conservative, I am excited to have found a home with PC Saskatchewan.
I graduated from the University of Alberta in 1995 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. Unable to find teaching work, I entered the trucking business and have had a successful career in various aspects of the industry for the past 25 years.
I have been a soccer referee for 5 years and am currently President of the Saskatoon and District Soccer Referees Association. I am a cat lover and supporter of SCAT Street Cat Rescue, with whom I have volunteered in the past.
