I am dedicated, ambitious and a bit of an old soul. I’ve grown up in Edmonton my whole life and have a soft spot for the central part of our community. I love the character in the older neighbourhoods, starting with the boulevard trees, landscaped crescents, and diversity of homes. A wise woman once told me “Only the good stuff happens out of your comfort zone”, after 15 Years of accounting and bookkeeping experience across different industries I am excited to leave my comfort zone and help others find the good stuff when it comes to their home base. As a single mother I understand the importance of having a solid foundation that starts at home. My son and I enjoy spending much of our free time at home, having epic games of bump and 21 on the driveway, biking our neighbourhood, and enjoying fires in the backyard. If we aren’t at home, we are out at our family farm enjoying everything the countryside has to offer, from zip lining to quadding or playing pond hockey in the winter. When I have downtime, you can find me baking, playing my vinyl collection, or buying another house plant.
