With over 25 years of direct involvement in Alberta municipal matters, I bring a wealth of experience to City Hall. I worked as a planning and development lawyer with the City’s law department for 8 years and in private practice for over 19 years. I have seen the development process from all sides. I fought for homeowners and local communities against poor development plans and a sometimes interventionist City Hall. I acted for developers and property owners, as they brought their vision of community building to life. My experience inside and outside of government has given me a balanced perspective - knowing that while good development is always necessary, not all development is necessarily good!
My family are 3rd generation Calgarians. I served as a volunteer and board member on numerous not for profit agencies (including the City’s planning commission), arts organizations, service clubs and condominium boards. I continue to pay taxes and manage a payroll at my own firm.
