How do you define civic leadership?

I see civic leadership in someone that aspires to make a difference in their community by the tackling issues and concerns for the betterment of society. 

Why are you personally motivated to explore civic leadership?

As a resident of the Niagara region since 1999, I have a desire to give back to the community that provides a great place for my family to grow, learn and work. I’ve seen many positive changes in our community thanks to work that other civic leaders have provided. I want to be part of Niagara’s civic leaders and continue to improve our community for the future.

In your view, what’s the most important attribute of a leader?

While many attributes contribute to the holistic representation of leadership, I find tremendous value in confidence. For me,  the confidence of a leader not only reassures those who follow but in many ways it intrinsically supports all the other attributes needed to lead through influence.
