Treasurer, New West Pride Society
in New Westminster
I was born in New Westminster, and lived on Holmes Street for the first 6 months of my life. My father then bought a farm and moved my mother and our family from New Westminster to 7.5 acres and an old farmhouse in the valley. My mother forgave him about the time i graduated from high school. I lived in the valley for most of my life, working in business and accounting and riding horses in my spare time. My husband and i moved back to New Westminster for good in 2009.
I am the controller for a local audiovisual company, and have been a team member there for about 21 years. Prior to that i had my own business and worked with several business' doing their books.
I am an Ally
