I am a mother of two who was born in the Philippines and I’ve worked as a front-line community service provider and a small business owner. I graduated from Simon Fraser University and am a long-time resident of Burnaby.
For almost three decades, I’ve helped improve the lives of everyday people through community organizing and advocacy work with all levels of government. I’ve also worked as an immigration consultant and family daycare owner, so I know the issues Burnaby residents face and what it takes to overcome them.
My work as a citizen representative on Burnaby’s Social Issues Committee and the Child Care Resources Group gave me the added experience of understanding the impact good municipal policies can have on local residents and families. I care deeply about housing affordability, climate change and the rising cost of living, and am committed to building a Burnaby that is safer, healthier, more affordable and inclusive for everyone.
