The call to action from Alberta Students, 2021
“Young people lack environmental and energy literacy, knowledge about climate – and hope for the future. Our students are asking for education to close that gap”.
I am blessed to be raising – and to know many other – young people who attend RDPSD. They want a fair and loving world. As a Trustee, I plan to advocate for our students. It is my responsibility to ensure all our students graduate with the hope, values, knowledge, and tools to succeed at being the best versions of themselves, while consciously contributing to the collective good. I support RDPSD’s values for learning and life: respectful, curious, responsible, collaborative, resilient, and healthy. I value culture and community, and work towards building a vibrant and strong division-wide family.
I grew up in Red Deer and graduated from Lindsay Thurber High School. Since then I have studied Landscape Architecture (NAIT), Permaculture Design, and sustainability education. I volunteer with parent councils, local boards, and not-for profits. I’ve owned and operated a landscape design and construction business for twenty years, and teach and speak at Alberta colleges and events about landscape design and urban agriculture.
