I’m a wife, mom, student and manager at a local business

I’m 4th Generation born and raised Calgarian. In 1998 my husband and I decided to move our family to Ponoka to raise our 3 year old in a small town and not the big city. In 2004 we had our second daughter and due to medical issues needed to be close to the Children’s Hospital. So we moved back to Calgary planning to live temporarily with my parents, but it worked out so well that we decided to stay together. By 2007 our daughter didn’t need to be at the Children’s Hospital as often so we were looking to get out of Calgary but still close enough for appointments. My parents had a couple of friends that were living in Irricana and kept saying we should come and check it out. We decided to do a day trip and immediately fell in love with Irricana and we moved within the next few months.

I love irricana’s quiet and friendly atmosphere. Saying hi to people while out for a walk, visiting and helping neighbours.

I have met some wonderful people since we moved here and always enjoy meeting new residents. I am proud to be part of such a supportive and beautiful community.
