I am proud to represent the K-12 children and communities of Bowden and Spruce View. My husband and I have farmed in the local Bowden/Innisfail area for over 30 years and raised our daughter here. I have served on the Board for the past nine years and am excited to continue. I truly believe that children are our future and should be given every opportunity to reach their fullest potential. It is our role as Trustees to lobby on your behalf to ensure that issues are addressed, policies and processes reviewed or established, and infrastructures put in place if and when necessary. We all need to work together to meet the diverse needs of today's learners and ensure that 'students come first'.
