President / Police liasion / Emergency Preparedness / Traffic
I have lived in Rockland for close to six years. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful community. The surrounding neighbourhood is beautiful, the community and neighbours are wonderful and we enjoy living so close to downtown. Joining the RNA Board as a Director (2013), in 2018 I assumed the role of President while also leading RNA related responsibilities for Traffic, Police Liaison and Emergency Management. When you research Rockland, it is described as an ’historic neighbourhood’. Locals and tourists visiting Victoria make a point of visiting Rockland and they often tell me it is a highlight of the trip. Tall majestic oak trees, beautiful heritage homes and the historic feel of Rockland make our community a truly magical place.
The preservation of Rockland's "uniqueness" reminds us to be attentive and not take something for granted at the risk of losing it forever. Having said that, I do not consider myself “anti-development”; instead, I advocate for preservation and/or responsible development that takes in to account the special heritage attributes of Rockland. I also feel strongly in the need to develop collaborative productive relationships with our partners, including the City of Victoria. You will often see me walking 'the beat' in the neighbourhood with our clan of spoiled golden retrievers. Besides my rewarding full-time career, my volunteer work with the RNA, spending time with my family, travel and sports take up all of my free time.
