I was born and raised in Nanaimo and business career involved working in a Nanaimo Chartered Accountants office as a bookkeeper and office manager .
My love of sewing prompted me to open my own business, and I started Snip & Stitch Sewing Centre when Harbour Park Mall opened in downtown Nanaimo. I opened a 2nd location in Woodgrove Shopping Centre several years later, and in 1992 built my own commercial rental property and relocated Snip & Stitch. I retired from Snip & Stitch in 2005, and from property development and management in 2016.

I am pleased to be on the Board of Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank, and to work with such a dedicated group of Staff and Volunteers. In our society no one should, whatever their circumstances, go hungry. We are able to provide nourishing food to those in need, and in so doing educate the public about hunger and poverty in our community. Our partnerships with businesses and food suppliers in our community allow us to service the needs of our clients and we are able to welcome them in a friendly and non-judgemental environment.

I am a semi-retired Nanaimo Family Physician. This is my second year serving on the Board of Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes Food Bank. I bring an interest in social justice issues, social determinants of health, and long experience on governance boards (current Past President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC).
I had been aware of the excellent work in the community done by Loaves and Fishes prior to serving-but what struck me most was the dedication of its volunteers-and the fun they were having! I now know that their work gives them a sense of purpose and fulfillment. I am delighted to be part of that as a governor, especially when Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes is seen as a model for food banks across BC.
