My Story

I was lucky enough to have been born and raised in Langford, and have lived here most of my life. I attended Savory Elementary and then Spencer Jr. High.  I went on to study at the University of Victoria where I earned my PhD in Biochemistry. 

I have always loved learning and was a keen student.  I also enjoyed performing arts, sports and student leadership activities both at school and in the community, and sought out opportunities for community service.

For the past 15 years, I have been teaching biology classes at UVic while raising my family in the heart of Langford. Currently, I am involved in several community groups including Friends of Cedar Vale Park, 100 Women Who Care Westshore, and the Westshore Chamber of Commerce.  I am passionate about family, nature and community!
