I have spent my professional and personal life advocating for education, social justice, economic equity, and the well-being of my community. My guiding principle for my work has been wanting for others what I would want for myself. As Vice President, my experiences will position me well to be able to assist the Party as we endeavour to increase our engagement with diverse communities across the province.
I ran as a candidate for the Ontario NDP in 2018 in Scarborough– where I came within 963 votes of winning. Last year, I stood up again for progressive values, running municipally in Scarborough and receiving endorsements from The Toronto and York Region Labour Council, Progress Toronto, The Toronto Star, Now Magazine, and others.
A proud French teacher and union member, I have advocated for and supported teachers as an elected released Executive Officer of the Elementary Teachers of Toronto (ETT) since 2011. Recently, I was honoured to be selected for the 2019 Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario’s Political Activist Award.
I am the President of the Scarborough Rouge Park Ontario NDP Riding Association and I volunteer for several other community groups. I have worked hard alongside other residents in a diverse area to increase community empowerment and advocate for improved public services, affordable housing, and good jobs. It is important to me to continue to educate and mobilize in my community and across the province and I will work tirelessly towards the goal of electing an NDP government in Ontario in 2022.
