I grew up in Kitsilano and still reside here. I worked as Community Relations and Service Quality Manager for the BC Govt, Social Development Ministry and retired in 2017 after 35 years of public service. I now spend time painting, enjoying theatre, dance, music and travel. I also spend time with a sister with Alzheimers and a friend with dementia. I find value in trying to improve the quality of their lives, and I learn so much from them on a daily basis. I joined the WSH Council in 2021, and am grateful for the important work it does and the connections made.
