Mission

Your Catholic School Board Trustee

“Be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire.” - St. Catherine of Siena


I hope to serve our community as:

  • Your child's advocate
  • Your voice for what's important to you
  • Your leader for a healthier community

Your VOTES, Your VOICE!

    As a mom of three school aged children, I value our Catholic education system. I know that a positive school experience is essential to our children’s success. As a regulated health professional working in cardiovascular care and prevention, I am passionate about supporting a healthier community.


I am proud to be your newly elected Catholic School Board Trustee, serving Mississauga in wards 9 and 10. I am committed to being your child's advocate and a voice for what is important to you!


  • My priority is to improve communication between schools, parents and the Board of Trustees. I believe input should be ongoing and inclusive of all at the decision making table.
  • My goal is to champion health initiatives for healthier kids. I am passionate about addressing mental and physical health to support  student learning.
  • My commitment is to push for change for a positive Catholic School experience for our children.

I will be working closely with our parents, educators, Trustees , community as well as our municipal and provincial elected representatives. We all need to ensure a collaborative approach in partnering for our children and community.  I look forward to making an impact in learning, growing and leading with Christ...because our children only get one childhood. 


Let's make a difference together!

This Is Us

To my three little people who call me “mommy”, if there is anyone who pushes me to dream bigger, stand taller and try harder, it is you! If I can show you anything, don't follow your dreams, chase them!


Why did I choose this path? Because our children only get one childhood. And that “why” is my mission.

And home is where the heart is.

KEY ISSUES

Your Voice Matters

Over the last several months, I have been working hard to seek community feedback at the doors of our Mississauga residents. I have listened to families about what our Catholic school systems are doing well and identifying the areas where we fall short of excellence. I am invested in all of these concerns. 


Some of the important issues that have been expressed through my conversations with our wards 9 and 10 constituents include: 

  • significant bus delays
  • kiss and ride safety
  • school parking zone congestion
  • crossing guard safety
  • need more priest involvement in our schools
  • combined classes
  • early education resources for kindergarden
  • special education programming
  • school trip cancellations
  • inadequate funding from public school supporters who have children also enrolled in catholic secondary schools
  • the need for spirit activities such as Halloween dance and Christmas concerts
  • low parent morale without an established parent council
  • lack of extracurricular activities
  • poorly maintained schoolyard equipment
  • curriculum changes, including the 2015 health education repeal
  • feedback on teacher performance
  • increasing technology in classrooms
  • lack of guidance on career direction from guidance counsellors, etc.
  • need for more religion taught in curriculum

I am passionate about continuous improvement in education for our children! 

  1. I will be participating in the Traffic Safety Council, along with Sue McFadden (Ward 10 Councillor), regarding the traffic issues around the schools. 
  2. I have been attending the Board of Trustee meetings open to the public to better understand the bus transportation issues, technology updates coming to our grade 7 and 8 students and current funding concerns. 
  3. I will be meeting with the schools to help support parent councils and spirit events for children. I will be working with our local priests and Youth Ministers to support school visits and religious teachings.

The roles and responsibilities of the Catholic School Board Trustee matter to me! I have a vision of strengthening the parent, school and community connection. As a mom with children in school and an active member of our community and churches, we must always strive for better...because "extraordinary lives start with a great catholic education".

Virtues

Faith

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Heb. 11:1) 

Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 15:13) 

Love

'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:30-31)
