Stéphanie grew up in Southwestern Ontario and moved to Ottawa in 2004. She has spent her entire career promoting and protecting our democratic institutions and infrastructure. She is passionate about Rideau-Vanier and the well-being of those who need a helping hand. A resident of Ward 12 for almost 20 years and proud francophone, she has led committees and volunteered with numerous organizations including Twice Upon a Time, Action Sandy Hill, the Parent’s Council at Francojeunesse, Refugee613, Take Me Outside, Run Ottawa, Equal Voice, and others. She also taught a course on municipal governance for two years at the Faculty of Common Law at the University of Ottawa.
Stéphanie cares deeply about walkable, safe and green neighbourhoods, and ensuring that we have spaces and places are welcoming for everyone. In 2020, in consultation with Inuit and First Nations communities, Stéphanie led the naming of the Annie Pootoogook Park and oversaw the first celebration of World Inuit Day. She worked closely with public health outreach to assist with the pandemic response in Rideau-Vanier and in 2017 she acted as a gestational surrogate for a gay couple as she believes LGBTQIA+ rights are human rights.
Stéphanie holds a Masters degree in Political Science from the University of Windsor. She lives in Sandy Hill with her family.
She is ready to work with you to address these and other critical issues important to Rideau-Vanier and invites you to follow her on social media and reach out anytime to her email below:
