Business Analyst

My past experience in the private sector in sales, marketing and business development, coupled with the most recent years as an elected councillor for the Village of Telkwa, puts me in a unique position to fulfill our responsibilities to individual entrepreneurs, existing businesses and the communities we serve.

I am passionate about both community development and regional economic development.  I fully appreciate the role that existing and new businesses play to achieve overarching goals. I also believe that a diversified and innovative approach contributes to the overall success of our endeavors.
