I have been in Chatham Kent for over 20 Years. Growing up in the Military, had me craving a community that I could put down roots in and make a home.
Chatham is my HOME. My free time is spent with Family and Friends. I love attending Community events and meeting new people.
I attended Western University in London and met my husband, we were married and started our life together, 30+ years and still going strong.
I have raised my 2 children in Chatham and my husband Rick has built his Business. With my Children grown I am wanting to give back to the community and the Chamber of Commerce gives me that opportunity with the Skills I have developed over the years I have been working in the Banking Industry for over 30 years. My Career with CIBC has been advising clients on business and personal needs and I am currently a Relationship Manager, Agriculture & Commercial Banking.
Chatham – Kent has a wealth of Entrepreneurial Spirit and I hope to share my experience and work with the Chamber to keep that Spirit going.

I am a transplant to Chatham, but VERY happy to call it home now! Originally from Leamington area, I located to Chatham in 2011, and have proudly served as the Executive Director of Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent – a local not for profit organization serving at-risk youth – since that time. While putting down roots here, I have become actively involved and invested in this great community; a long serving Board Director with Big Brothers Big Sisters Chatham-Kent, member of the CK Crime Prevention Board, and honoured to serve as the 2013 Campaign Co-Chair for the United Way of Chatham-Kent…to name a few!
I like to spend my spare time laughing with family and friends – especially the tiny comedian known as my toddler son – ‘moonlight’ as a waitress occasionally, go for long walks with my dog, practice yoga, cook for as many people fit around the dining room table, and read a good book.
Those who have met me know that I am extremely passionate about the work Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent – and the local non-profit sector – does in this great community. I am also passionate about CK as a whole; a community that has provided me with so many opportunities, successes, and happy memories. I have been involved with the CK Chamber for several years now, and am excited to continue to bring my voice, not for profit sector experience, and outlook as a young professional to the Chatham-Kent Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Looking forward to working with this diverse group of dedicated community members as the ‘voice’ of local business, and to make CK a stronger, more vibrant place to live, work and play in!
I was born and raised in Chatham-Kent, growing up and attending school in Blenheim. After high school, I attended Brock University in St. Catharines, obtaining my Honours Bachelor of accounting, with first-class standing. While at Brock I was active in our annual free tax clinic, run entirely by student volunteers from the Bachelor of Accounting Program. Services offered by our tax clinic included reviewing, completing and filing personal tax returns for qualifying members of the community. I also participated in the peer tutor program as a mathematics tutor, as well as several intramural teams.
After University, and post graduate studies in Toronto, I moved back to Chatham-Kent, purchasing a home in Blenheim in 2013. Also in 2013, I obtained my Chartered Professional Accountant designation, while working at Collins Barrows in Chatham, where I articled throughout University. I am in my 9th year working at Collins Barrow, working primarily with owner managed businesses within the community, servicing several industries, including real estate, agriculture and construction.
While not working, I enjoy the many easily accessible pleasures the community has to offer. I golf at Willow Ridge Golf and Country Club (Formerly the Blenheim Community Golf Course) where I have been a member for 25 years. Prior to the sale of the course in 2015, I served on the board of the community run course for several years. I also like to take advantage of the surrounding bodies of water for fishing and boating activities and enjoy participating in several recreational sports leagues.
I look forward to working with the members of the Chamber to make a positive difference in the community, from both a social and a business prosperity standpoint.
