Describe your career path to this career.

I have been involved all my life from school projects to member of parliament. My goal was always to help contribute to make a better society. After I graduated from University I worked in communications and marketing for several different businesses. I took on different leadership roles in several organizations where I used my communications background to help them with their goals. I advanced in my career in communications and marketing taking on greater responsibilities and roles. As I was always interested in helping my community I ran successfully for provincial government. After I lost my seat I returned to the communications field and had several successful positions of leadership. I’m continuing my communications role as a political commentator.

What activities do you like to do outside of work?

Being outdoor is one of my greatest pleasures but getting involved in various causes represents my greatest achievement.
