United Conservative Party
I respectfully ask for your vote for Red Deer-North.
I am a strong woman of faith, a daughter to immigrant Italian parents, a wife of 34 years, mother of seven, and grandmother of three.
Along with my husband, we own, run and operate our family farm on the outskirts of Red Deer. We are also actively involved in an agribusiness venture.
My training in rehabilitative studies, working with the mentally and physically challenged, brought me to Red Deer in the early-1980s, but my love of family, of Red Deer, of the surrounding area and Alberta, has kept me here ever since.
I strongly believe in servant leadership, and as such, have served on more than 50 boards and committees, as well as volunteered extensively in my church and my community.
I have also been honoured to serve on numerous local, provincial and national boards. I am proud to have been an elected school board trustee for more than 11 years, fulfilling many roles, including board chair and contract negotiator.
I served three consecutive terms as provincial president of the trustee association, as well as national vice-president. I have years of experience managing budgets over $100 million.
My proven leadership abilities and diverse life experiences have seasoned me with the practical knowledge Red Deer and Alberta critically needs right now.
Extremely organized, competent, honest, courageous, ethical, effective, critical thinker, problem solver, compassionate, advocate and champion of the marginalized have all been words used to describe me.
As your MLA, I will take that work ethic and spirit into the legislature to stand up for what matters to you here in Red Deer, to promote the best quality of life for all.
