I am proud to work as your Ward 3 City Councillor.
In the first six months of office, I have championed motions to address equity and inclusion, climate action, living wage, and dignified housing city-wide.
I am consistently working to remove barriers and improve community life through out the ward and have invested over $400,000 for safer streets, drinking fountains, and playground enhancements.
Through engagement we know that the top priorities for Ward 3 residents are community safety, city-wide transit, safe shared streets, affordable and dignified housing, and using municipal tools to address the climate crisis.
My team and I are interested in solutions that help our communities thrive.
I have spent my career committed to community and resident leadership.
I’m a community organizer with 20 years of experience in community-building and leadership development. I’m also a mom with a toddler, raising a family in the Sherman Hub.
At only 21 years of age, I became the first National Representative on Youth Issues for the Canadian Labour Congress. For six years, I trained youth across Canada to develop their community-building and leadership skills in the workplace.
I later moved to New York City to lead the education department of the largest local union in North America, the Services Employees International Union Healthcare 1199. In my subsequent role as the Manager of Community Development for the City of Toronto, I supported residents through community-led projects, managing a multi-million dollar budget and a team of 17.
Nearly a decade ago, I moved to Hamilton and became an active member in our community.
I have always championed equity, diversity and inclusion in leadership, and every day I take that philosophy to City Hall.
Let’s work together to lift Ward 3 up.
