Aleria has 20 years of experience developing and implementing public policy as an employee of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. She has extensive experience collaborating with multiple levels of government and managing productive negotiations with numerous interest groups. She knows how to move forward collaboratively after hearing and weighing different points of view, and plans to bring these skills and experience to council as we grapple with the challenges of managing our town’s growth.

Prior to council, Aleria volunteered on the Gibsons Advisory Planning Commission; the Winegarden Park Advisory Committee; the Armours Beach and Foreshore Planning Initiative; the Board of Directors for the Gibsons Public Market and the Planning Committee for the Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre.  She has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management from Royal Roads University and a Technical Diploma from BCIT’s Fish, Wildlife and Recreation Program.
