Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Ward web page.


It is my privilege to be your elected public school board Trustee for Ward 6 – York South-Weston.

I was born and raised here in our community.  It is a community that I love, where I have developed many life-long friendships, and where I have chosen to raise my own family.

Growing up, it was impressed upon me the value and importance of building strong inclusive communities and to help your neighbour. These are the principles that guide me in public life and which I teach to my own children. 

I have worked and volunteered in various capacities growing up in our community and have had the opportunity of working with many of the children from many of local neighbourhoods. This is where I experienced firsthand many of the real economic and social challenges faced by many families. 

My role as your Trustee, is to advocate for you and your child, and to represent the needs of all students and parents/guardians across the Toronto District School Board. I have consistently advocated for getting the resources that our community schools need and believe we need to work together to advocate for the investments that help make a difference in our children’s lives.

On the TDSB website, and on this page, you can stay informed on what’s happening at the Board, including policies under review, program updates and discussions around new initiatives to improve student success. You can also learn more about ways you can get involved and participate in the education process, like attending Board meetings or checking out volunteer opportunities.

Education is a shared responsibility, and I welcome and encourage your participation in our public school system.
