Candidate - Director (Nova Scotia)
My undergraduate education is in Social Justice and Peace Studies and Sociology. I pursued studies in this area because I wanted to act as a political and social critic and become an agent for progressive social transformation. My post-graduate studies are in business administration, project management, and disability management.
This past year I founded Love in Action Society. The purpose of this organization is to address issues of gender inequality in society and provide training and solutions to empower womyn. I feel strongly that women need to be represented in government. We need womyn involved in all aspects of the political process to bring attention to a wide range of issues and solutions.
Through networking, advocacy and creative problem-solving, I have been a change agent in my community. I bring project management education, decision-making ability, and cultural competency skills to the table. I have extensive experience serving on multiple community boards (eg. Northern AIDS Connection Society; Red Bear Healing Society; Canadian Cancer Society; Community Inc), in various roles. I am an experienced volunteer organizer and fundraiser.
Womyn’s engagement is crucial and I would like to be part of movement to get more womyn involved and elected.
