I, along with my two brothers and four sisters, grew up on a farm North of The Battlefords, where our parents taught us a strong work ethic and politics was our religion. Though it has been many years since I’ve lived on the farm, the farm will never leave me; I will die a farmer at heart.

I have worked for the Provincial Government for 30 years. I worked for Provincial Parks for many years and for Social Services since 1996.

I am a socialist, and a humanist.

I have two grown children. Sandra is a teacher and lives with her boyfriend near Humboldt.  Donald lives in Calgary with my 17 year old granddaughter, Abby and my 8 year old grandson, Brandon.

I am excited by cohousing! What a wonderful way to age in place. The workshop, the sauna, the exercise room, and the large common areas, both inside and outside, are only a few of the things I enjoy sharing with my new neighbours. How nice it is to have an in-house movie night, listen to the laughter and conversations at communal dinners, and making salsa and jam together in the big beautiful kitchen we have.
