Hello MHBNA! That’s a mouthful… Thanks for your support! I’m very excited to represent our neighbourhood and Ward 10 on city council. I have a fondness for Mount Hope – Breithaupt Park as it is where I live and play. I decided to run for city council as I was troubled with how our province has been handling our progress towards climate, tearing down wind turbines, building gas power plants and firing the environment ombudsman. And now Bill 23 threatens to pave our green belt. As a mother of two quirky kids, I want to be sure that our various levels of government work to promote a livable planet and a healthy city. I felt that as a climate advocate, social worker and activist I could contribute as a city Councillor to promote well-being, climate solutions, thoughtful city planning and equity.
At this time, I have a seat on the Downtown Action Advisory Committee, The Downtown BIA, the Active Transportation and Trails Advisory Committee and the Climate Change and Environment Committee.
I continue to work part time as a school social worker, supporting students who have disengaged with their learning to find the strength and motivation to take action on their life goals. I’m married to Ryan Fobel, a data engineer and heat pump enthusiast, and we have two kids Zidra 12, and James 10. I hope to get to know everyone over the
next four years and help celebrate community, work to build healthy neighbourhoods and promote our good values in our city.
