Vancouver, BC | INCUMBENT

EXPERIENCE IN CYCLING AND VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS

I currently act as a coach and volunteer and have just finished my first term as a director on the Cycling BC board. On the board I was involved in several committees. I have experienced racing in a variety of cycling disciplines including: downhill, cross-country, road and track.  I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to race internationally for a few years and experienced riding and racing all over the world. Over the course of my cycling life I have been a member of several clubs and teams, as well as volunteered with the BC Summer Games, local clubs, and races. I currently dabble in Masters Racing.

 

ORGANIZATIONAL MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE

I am involved in multiple steering committees, including change management, and I regularly meet and work with a variety of external stakeholders. In my regular job I am a Senior Manager within government. This has included working with community agencies to promote government initiatives. I have also completed my MBA and several courses and professional designations related to management.

 

HOW DO YOU THINK YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO CYCLING BC’s BOARD OF DIRECTORS?

My experience on the Cycling BC board has prepared me to contribute through participatory initiatives, as well as add my perspective on the competitive racing calendar. As a member of the Ethics Committee I have worked with other board members to establish processes and help guide policy development. I have also been part of the board as Cycling BC has faced the challenges of the current pandemic and has worked to devise a multi-phase return to sport plan. I would like to see Cycling BC nurture the next generation of top Canadian cyclists within an active competitive cycling scene while continuing to promote cycling within the province. I would welcome the opportunity to continue working as a member of the board.
