The first question I always get asked is "Why are you running for office"?
The answer is simple. I love Calgary and want our new federal riding to have strong representation in Ottawa. I think it's time for fresh faces and ideas from someone with practical experience who will work hard for you. That is why I am running for the Conservative nomination for Calgary Confederation.
Although I’m new to the world of politics, I bring over fifteen years experience as a trilingual businesswoman and as a former executive to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. I am passionate about public service and have dedicated the majority of my career to improving the public sector. My experience as a change management consultant to over a dozen federal government departments has given me extensive knowledge of how the federal public sector works and how our tax dollars are spent.
Over the last 14 months, I worked with Canada's largest oil and gas company. As a senior change management strategist, I worked with a team to improve the reliability and safety of the operations in the oil sands. I took this opportunity to get a hands on understanding of the industry at the heart of our economy.
I believe this unique combination of experience in both public and private sector and my passion for public service makes me the ideal candidate to represent you as your Member of Parliament.
I have come to realize that the best way to influence positive change is through public office. I have been successful in my career because of my ability to build and sustain relationships and I believe that this is one of the most important factors in being a great Member of Parliament. Building relationships with you, the constituents is my number one priority. I want to put my experience and passion to work for you as your Conservative candidate for Calgary Confederation in the next federal election.
With your Conservative Party of Canada membership, and your vote in the nomination, we can make it happen!
As your Conservative representative, I will advocate for:
- Fair, affordable taxation and fiscal responsibility;
- Citizen focused public services;
- Research and innovation;
- Promoting our natural resources in environmentally sustainable ways;
- Lean, efficient government.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet and discuss issues that matter to you!
