Although I grew up in the lower mainland in British Columbia, I came North at a young age for a short term like most. Now 27 years later the north is my home along with my husband and family. Both my children live and work in the north. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to spend family time in the evenings and on weekends enjoying what the beautiful north has to offer. We enjoy snowmobiling, camping, boating, fishing, and what ever else gives us a reason to get outdoors. We also have many close friends that have become our second family, and we enjoy getting out to socialize or attend local events regularly.
I started off my career in admin, accounting, and management. Then my husband and I owned and operated a large Home Hardware retail store for 17 years in Hay River. In 2011 we sold the business and I moved into real estate. Since being in real estate I have covered a variety of residential and commercial markets in the Northwest Territories, most recently in Yellowknife. Customer service and attention to detail is the foundation of what I have built my career on.
I enjoy both winter and summer recreation in Yellowknife. Ladies night at the golf course on Wednesday is a very popular social event that I try to attend weekly in the summer with friends. There also are excellent fitness classes offered in Yellowknife that keep it fun to stay active.
Although Yellowknife has some great recreation I do love to travel. Living in a cold climate makes escaping from home very attractive in the winter. My husband and I generally retreat to Hawaii yearly for some sunshine and heat to break up the winter.
I have always had a strong interest and investment in business and the local economy. The Chamber of Commerce is something I have always maintained membership in and also sat on multiple boards as an executive member. I currently am on the executive of the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce.
I like to be involved in the organizations I have interests towards. I participate in advising committees through the Yellowknife Chamber. Last year I also got involved in the committee to organize the ladies annual charity golf tournament.
