Dani has made one promise. She guarantees that your voice will be heard and will work to ensure that we have the services and resources that we need to continue to be a successful community.

Bill and I moved to this area to raise our family in a safe, rural community in 2005.

Over the last 13 years we have developed many relationships and friendships in this area. As I have heard from many people it really does take a village to raise a family. I feel blessed we had the opportunity to raise our family here.

If elected, I will work diligently to make sure our municipality continues to celebrate its history, farming, family owned businesses and the people who have all had a part to make our community as promising as it is today.

I will guarantee that your voice is heard and will work to ensure that we have the services and resources that we need to continue to be a successful community.

Dani has been a labour activist since she joined the union in 1996. Before coming to United Way she was a trained women’s advocate dealing with violence against women. She was an elected Trustee for her union and the Chair for the Women’s Committee and Vice-Chair for the Human Rights Committee.

In her Role as Labour Programs & Service Coordinator, Dani is able to utilize her skills in program development and facilitation by delivering courses such as the Labour Community Advocate Program. This program empowers participants to become trained referral agents for their coworkers. In this role, Dani works with both the United Way and the Labour movement. “For me this role is the best of both worlds. I get to live my grass root labour values while making a difference in my community. A community where everyone matters truly speaks to where my heart is.”
