Proud to support and be endorsed by Mayoral Candidate, Councillor Doug Kobayashi. Shown here with candiate Kim Jordison and I. 

A growing community

Colwood is a spectacular seaside community set apart by its outstanding natural setting and exceptional quality of life.

Development on the horizon will be focused primarily at Colwood Corners and Royal Bay, and along the Sooke Road transit corridor. Many new homes of all form factors are anticipated, including the development of Royal Beach into a truly regional destination! 


  1. Colwood's waterfront is a stewarded, world-class destination for residents and visitors alike.

  2. People and nature are exceptionally well connected in Colwood.

  3. Colwood residents have realistic transportation choices

  4. Our children will be able to live in their community, and our seniors age in place in a wide variety of new housing.

Practical Real-World Experience

Experienced business leader, volunteer, coach and teammate

"It is my goal to leverage my education, experience and community-centric approach to act in a manner that considers the needs of all Colwood stakeholders. I believe that it is the mandate of City Council to outline the vision with developers and the development community, and to work in tandem with them to ensure we grow for tomorrow. We also need leadership with an appetite to find innovative and new ways to extract maximum value for the benefit of residents and taxpayers. Collaboration with regional and higher levels of government, private/public partnerships, and new ways of thinking to address such issues as deficient infrastructure, accessibility, physician shortages and traffic/safety."

If elected I will: 
  • Support a repeal of the 85% raise in pay for Mayor (and Council) in favour of a balanced, professional review that incorporates all the data.
  • Increase transparency into City dealings
  • Pursue amenity charges and strong financial management overall for growing Colwood
  • Foster an "open tent" for citizen engagement and contribution
