About Me

I have called Red Deer home for over 26 years. I have three great kids and have been married for 24 years. As a family, we love boating, waterskiing and spending our summers on the water. In the winter, my family can be found in the mountains enjoying down hill skiing. My kids are involved in all kinds of sports and activities and I am the loudest fan in the stands cheering them on!
