My Photo:

With my hard hat at the ready, I’m preparing for the day when we break ground for a fantastic new museum in North Vancouver. Working with Museum & Archives staff, volunteers, City staff and representatives of Polygon Homes, we’re planning an exciting and modern museum in the heart of Lower Lonsdale directly across from Lonsdale Quay.

What I Do:

I work with staff, volunteers, municipal representatives, community members and partner organizations to build a better North Vancouver by preserving and sharing community history, and promoting the inspiring vision for a 21st century Museum that builds and connects our community.

What I Bring:

With masters degrees in Arts Administration and Museum Studies, I’ve worked in museums across Canada and the US. Over the course of my career, I’ve organized international exhibitions, helped plan a new museum, orchestrated the move of a priceless art collection, authored dozens of successful grant proposals and led numerous project teams.

What I Enjoy About North Vancouver:

I love living and working in a beautiful and inspiring place—a place with a unique and fascinating history—sitting directly between a mountain wilderness and a sophisticated metropolitan area that has so much to offer to residents and visitors.
