I joined CON after being inspired by its Chair Marty who helped me through my post op surgical complication journey. We have like ideals and I want to help the Public Engagement Committee and CON overall achieve all their goals. I have dealt with obesity all my life and so has my family. Both my wife and I have succeeded in losing a lot of weight post Bariatric Surgery and I want to fight and advocate for this treatment, as well as many others, become more readily available and available to the obese population all across Canada. I want to take this fight to make obesity considered a disease and not such a bias to people so that my children can live in a more informed and embracing world.
I am married with 2 growing boys and love playing sports and watching movies. I am Civil Engineering Tech and work for the City of Edmonton.
