I have been an Ottawa Resident for 25 years, graduated from Carleton University and been of service to Canadians for 20 years within the Federal Government- Health Canada ( side note at the end of priority leave I was offered a position at the RCMP) instead decided to lead and work in my own company exclusively.
Extensive Community Association Experience as a board Member throughout the City over the years ( Two time- Civic Award Recipient ) Board Member on the Ottawa Neighbourhood Watch Executive Committee overseeing all plans for consideration working with the City Councillors ( Diane Deans, Steve Desroches and Jan Harder) , Police ( CPC Centre Officers) and Residents. Volunteered for the Ottawa Police Department in Victim Witness Services, Race Relations and Crown Attorneys office at the Provincial Court House. Volunteer work with Halton Regional Police Department on Crime Prevention.
Found my passion in being a Small Business Owner and proudly became an Award Winning Corporation. Close to a decade now serving and leading the Professional Residential Cleaning Industry and preferred choice to Military and Emergency Personnel In the Ottawa and Surrounding Areas.
My life also keeps me busy as a mom to two boys 7 & 13, a 14 year old step daughter and of course to make mention of our year and a half old Yellow Lab. Lily will be seen with me frequently as she has become my side kick ( learn more about Patty's story and how Lily came into her life after the deaths of her step- dad and dad in 2020 Lily has become her therapy pup)
We keep a close eye on Riverside South, Half Moon Bay, Richmond / Munster where our children spend time with other parents and attend different schools. Public Safety, Transportation, Safe to School Routes and Safe School Zones along with roads and Infrastructure. I closely watch what other parts of the City implement being mindful of what is possible for Ward #21. I appreciate the traffic calming and safe road crossing signals as examples for many villages, hamlets and busy intersections in our area.
Follow along and happy to organize a meet up with neighbours to chat out the issues further specific to Ward #21.
