I was born in Regina Sask. moved to Victoria BC in 1976 when I was traded from the Regina Pats to the Victoria Cougars. As a result of an injury my hope for playing professional hockey came to an abrupt end. I got my start in the auto industry in 1979 as a Business Manager working for some of the top import dealers on the west coast. In 2006 at the age of 49 my wife and I decided we wanted a change and spent the next year looking all over Canada for our dream home and property. We found it in the form of Country Lane Bed & Breakfast on Maquapit Lake. We moved here not knowing a single person except our realtor and now we know hundreds that we call our friends. We love the Maritimes and the people who live here, this is an amazing part of the world and will be our home for the rest of our lives.

I've had the pleasure of working at Fredericton Mazda for 7 years. We are a family owned dealership, not part of a conglomerate, which makes for a more intimate experience for both our clients and staff. I am a true Mazda enthusiast because driving should be fun and Mazda's were built to provide an amazing driving experience. The MX5 is my favorite but I just purchased a 2016 CX3 which is a perfect fit for this environment.I've had the pleasure of working at Fredericton Mazda for 7 years.

I grew up in a bilingual household in Grand Falls. I met Tim there when we were maybe 6 or 7 years old. We were friends throughout our school years and married after university. I have a B.SC from Dalhousie University and a B.PR from Mount Saint Vincent University. After a few years working in the communications field, Tim and I started our family. We are the very proud parents of two girls, Justine and Brigitte who are in high school at ESA and FHS, respectively. Just as our youngest was going off to kindergarten, Tim and I purchased the Mazda dealership. That’s when my work life took a very different turn. After a short career in communications, I now had to learn the fine art of bookkeeping! It was a sharp learning curve but I somehow have managed to get payroll done and pay bills on time.
