Annette is the proud mom of Emily, a beautiful young woman who lives with diverse abilities. Emily inspired Annette to become active as an advocate and because of this she has had the great pleasure to be involved as a board member with Inclusion BC, the Inclusion BC Foundation and the Richmond Society for Community Living.

A degree in Education and over thirty years administrative experience as the co-owner of a manufacturing business in Richmond are also part of Annette’s background. As a member of the RSCL Inclusive Education Committee and the Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children’s Ethics Committee she continues to advocate for resources to be readily available and accessible for all individuals with diverse abilities and their families.
