I have lived in Beaver Bank for over 35 years. District 14 is where I chose to raise my family.
I graduated from Sackville High School in 1986 and stayed in the community while obtaining my Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) degree from the University of King's College.
After graduation, I was incredibly blessed to be able to grow my career in HRM, working in radio, television, newspapers and now new media.
During that time, I have covered Halifax Regional Council extensively. I know the people, I know the issues.
Married to Jamie Paterson and proud mom to my daughter Bronwyn who is going into her final year at Lockview High School and step-daughter Heather who is studying in London, Ont.
We have two soft-coated wheaten terriers who are the furry sons we never had.
