On October 18th, a newly-elected Town Council has a fresh chance to build again on the work of the past.
Now is the time for new vision, priorities, and directions. Now is the time for strong, experienced leadership to take our community to the next level.
I look forward to meeting you over the coming weeks, to hear your concerns and your hopes for the future of Three Hills. I am also excited to share my vision for the future of Three Hills with you.
Once I have met as many of you as possible, I will offer my formal policy positions at the Candidates Forum being arranged by the Chamber of Commerce. I hope to see you there.
Being born and raised in Three Hills, my family and I have deep roots here. I have lived elsewhere to further my education and training, grow my career, and take on new challenges, but I have always returned to the place I call home.
In 2016, my husband and I moved to Three Hills so that I could partner with my son in purchasing a business owned by Norris Kirk and my father, Vernon Wiebe. We built a new building and opened Kirk’s Heating & Custom Sheet Metal Ltd. in July of 2015.
In being here, I want to help safeguard all that has been entrusted to our community by the people of Three Hills and the Councils that have come before and take new action to make us even better and stronger together.
I am a passionate community leader who is committed to delivering the kind of strong, experienced leadership that Town Council needs as we help move Three Hills forward into the future.
Since becoming a part of the Three Hills community I have been involved with the following organizations over the years:
Power Skating Instructor
Figure Skating Coach
International Women’s Day Committee Chair
For the Mayor, leadership is the ability to energize and encourage others, the ability to find a way for every member of Council to contribute to making something extraordinary happen for Three Hills.
Experience has shown me that Council relies on the Mayor to lead in different ways at different times: assessing the individual situation, helping set priorities, taking the lead on some things and delegating others, ensuring everyone is engaged and heard, while moving decisions forward.
Over the last 37 years of my career, I have been actively participating at the Municipal level of government. My experience and education in various departments has given me a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of Town Administration, Town Council, and the Mayor.

I have 13 years of employment experience at the municipal level, having worked in the following roles:
Operations Coordinator and Recreation Coordinator
Water Conservation and Watershed Coordinator

North Area Special Event Coordinator
I have had the privilege of working in the Public Works & Operations, Development, Community Services, Recreation and Agriculture departments. I have seen first-hand how five different municipalities manage these departments. My time at these locations was invaluable to my education of municipal government and what I do today. It was throughout that decade that my passion for this work was solidified and set me up to start my own consulting firm that would eventually work alongside municipalities all over Alberta and British Columbia.
I have 15 years of experience working alongside the municipal level of government. I have worked with over 100 municipalities all over Alberta and British Columbia; those roles included:
Human Resources Director
Zone 3 Director
