Right now Banff is recovering. You are recovering. Banff Council needs to support your rebound by working with multiple levels of government to encourage a safe return to our tourism economy and work on accessible housing.
In the long term, Banff Council needs to continue our commitment to environmental stewardship, working with Parks Canada, and balance development within our tightly defined borders. Your community, Banff is on the global stage and we must work to protect it for your children and grandchildren.
I love to contribute to Banff, whether it's through business, volunteerism, at the gym or walking around town with my dog waving and saying hi to you.
Working with clients, staff, and artists for over 30 years, I collaborated with all types of people. I connect with, listen to, and work well with others.
Being approachable is key to keeping lines of communication open. A willingness to listen, consider and dialogue with you is essential... and enjoyable. We're all in this town together!
To be an effective councillor I need to build consensus with others. This requires listening to you and representing your opinions to your Council in a convincing way to build consensus..
Door knocking... some people love it, some people don't. I am DOUBLE VAXXED, will ring doorbells, step back, respectfully ask if you're comfortable talking. If not... I'll ask if you would like me to leave a flyer at your door. If yes - great thanks. If not, that's totally fine!
Also.... I would love to chat with you and listen to your concerns and ideas for Banff. Following is a schedule of dates with times that you can join me for coffee or tea.

Banff has a deep history as a gathering place for trade, ceremony and sharing. It is located within the Treaty 7 Territory of the Stoney Nakoda Nations of Chiniki, Wesley and Bearspaw, the Three Nations of the Blackfoot Confederacy; the Sisika, Kainai and Piikani Nations; and the Tsuu T’ina of the Dene and Metis Nation of Alberta, the Ktunaxa and the Maskwacis People. This history of Banff as a gathering place continues today through tourism and our collective love for Banff and the surrounding area. This acknowledgement is an act of gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or visit in the past, present and future, and is a step in the journey of reconciliation.
