||Born and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I completed a Bachelor of Commerce and Certificate in Human Resources Management from Saint Mary's University in Halifax. I left the East Coast in 2013 to pursue new opportunities and experience another part of Canada. Since leaving Nova Scotia, I've resided in Whitehorse, Victoria and Vernon. I've been working in the financial services industry for 12 years and I am the Branch Manager of the Scotiabank in Glenmore. I am on the committee of the Okanagan Women in Leadership Chapter with Scotiabank and I am a member of the Vernon Toastmasters Club. In my spare time I enjoy horseback riding, soccer, making new connections and exploring more of beautiful British Columbia.
