About Justine

I thought I was a big city person… until I came to North Bay. I moved here for work in September 2018. Within three months, I fell in love with the city, bought a house, and began to build roots. Today, I live in the Pinewood area with my husband, Justin, and our 11-year-old dog named Jiovani.

I am running for City Council because it is time to showcase the incredible gems of this city. North Bay has an abundance of local artisans and businesses, high-quality restaurants, and passionate people doing powerful grassroots work. Surrounded by gorgeous lakes and forests, North Bay is also home to some of the kindest people. We need a City Council that works for the community. Decisions by Council must benefit the community for the long term. As your City Councillor, I will work for you.

Community Building

I have over eight years of experience in community outreach, political engagement, and health promotion.
