After growing up on my parents’ dairy farm just outside of Almonte, I spent a dozen years studying and working as a professional musician before transitioning to a career in the health industry. I hold a double Masters Degree, having graduated from McGill, the University of Toronto and Laval University. Now and then you’ll hear me playing my trumpet around town as the duty bugler with the Legion, or raising money for the Salvation Army, or performing at PorchFest. I moved back to this community a decade ago because it’s where my heart is. My family and friends are here. My roots are here. My goal in public life is to fulfill my responsibilities to the best of my ability, contributing in a positive and meaningful way to our community. I truly consider it an honour to serve as Mayor of the place I love so much.

I was first elected as a Ramsay Ward Councillor in 2014, and then as Mayor of Mississippi Mills in 2018. As Mayor, I also sit on Lanark County Council.  County Council appointed me to the Board of Directors of Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation, which provides local entrepreneurs access to funding, training, and mentorship. I serve on Lanark County’s Agriculture Advisory Committee. I represent Mississippi Mills on the Board of Directors of the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, for which I am the Finance Committee Chair and Co-Chair of the Mill of Kintail Museum Special Advisory Committee. I am also on the Board of Directors for the Mississippi River Power Corporation, which operates a hydro-electric generation station where Mississippi Mills is the sole shareholder. I am past chair of our Municipal Community Policing Advisory Committee, and a past member of both the Community & Economic Development and Agricultural Advisory Committees.
