A Woman in Politics – A Lighter Perspective
Raising three children aboard a 42 foot boat no less, segued into buying a home where she could still have access to the beautiful outdoors. Cheryl and her husband Dean became residents of Maple Ridge in 1995.
Cheryl entered the world of politics in 1999. She ran for the Maple Ridge School Board and was the Vice Chair of the Board of Education for one term and the Chair of the Board for two.
She turned her attention to city council in 2008 and served there for six years. During this time, she became involved with the Provincial Liberals and managed the successful campaign of Dr. Doug Bing in 2013. She joined his office team as his Constituency Assistant thereafter.
After 18 years of front line training and experience within many levels of government, Cheryl has a solid understanding of what women in politics face. She is presently studying to become a certified parliamentarian and has a board development company called Ashlie Board Consulting: Offering the ABCs of Effective Board Governance.
Learn about navigating local politics with a young family in tow and the humorous side of that challenge. This cannot be outshone by the pitfalls of menopause being played out on the public stage. Cheryl’s wish is to encourage and appreciate those who take on the world of politics.
