I am seeking your support for election to the CHF BC Board.

This is a critical time for CHF BC and the sector.  Co-op housing is an excellent answer to the affordable housing crisis that grips the province.  Yet, co-op housing has been under threat.  So, we must continue to fight to preserve our co-ops while we advocate for even more affordable, safe, community-based housing.

Co-op sector experience:

I have lived in Marina Housing Co-op for more than 10 years and have served on the Board of Directors and the Maintenance, Finance, Parking and Land-Lease Committees.  I am also a member of other co-ops focused on banking and transportation.

Work experience:

I am a goal-oriented, problem-solving critical-thinker drawing on best practices from careers as a lawyer, management consultant, entrepreneur, and content-creator. I have over 20 years of experience across a range of industries, including real estate, media, legal technology, healthcare, and social enterprise. I currently work in operations, strategy and growth for a company focused on access-to-justice.  My volunteer experience includes fundraising for international spinal surgeries, supporting women affected by HIV, and mentoring entrepreneurs.

If elected, my priorities are to:

  • Ensure that CHF BC continues its great work of putting co-ops and co-op members first.
  • Advocate for the development of more co-op homes.
  • Strengthen our organization to ensure that the co-op housing movement is prepared to continue to lead into the future.

Thanks for considering me for a director position and for all the work you do to make co-ops thrive.
