Growing up in a small town in Northern BC, the vast landscape right outside my front door was my Art Gallery. My parents made sure I had access to lots of art supplies and had ample time to let my imagination run wild. I travelled to France as a teen and was introduced to wonderful art. I was hooked! I went on to attend art school in Vancouver and Halifax, followed by a seemingly unrelated 14 year career in financial planning. Everything happens for a reason. The two paths of my life converged beautifully in 2012 when I became the Development Specialist here at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. I love working with our donors and having an opportunity to make our community a better place by garnering support for our Gallery.
Away from the Gallery you can find me walking our dog, learning to sculpt, mucking around with paint, and travelling as much as I can. My husband and I are parents to two wonderful young men and are delighted to be welcoming two lovely daughters-in-law into our family.
