Hockey Card:

Occupations? Reporter for Shaw's The Express

Furthest place you travelled to and why: Australia to travel for six months

Describe yourself using five words or less. Outdoorsy, outgoing and inquisitive.

What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? I spent five years of my life living on top of Whistler Mountain.

Profile Questions:

What do you see as the top election issues? Community engagement, development and economic viability

How would you address the housing developments now facing the Village? Stick to guidelines and policies set out in the Official Community Plan. Provide an environment where developers have a clear idea of the process while keeping the community informed and provide opportunities for input.

What do you think is the Village of Pemberton's role in boosting economic activity? Provide appropriate zoning, an easy-to-navigate development process and an inviting environment for new business.

What would you do to enhance the environment for business? Have the Economic Development Committee reinstated, adopt an appropriate commercial tax incentive, streamline process for new businesses, increase dialogue with local businesses and improve relationship with Pemberton Chamber.

Give an example of a difficult situation you have overcome. Losing my Dad to cancer.

Where can people go to get your election platform?
