Kelowna votes 2018: Linsay Bell is running for councillor

Kelowna goes to the polls Oct. 20

I grew up in Burlington, Ontario and moved to the Okanagan in 2002. I’m a mother of two amazing young men aged 10 and 13, both of whom are in French immersion and are avid hockey players.

I can be found daily on a hiking trail or dog park with my beautiful Swiss mountain dog.

I graduated from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario with a bachelors degree in sociology. I created Peachland’s first youth club back in 2004. I worked/volunteered at Syl Aps youth detention centre from 1996 to 2000 in Oakville, Ontario.

I was the youngest elected Peachland official and was instrumental in bringing the Boys and Girls Club to Peachland.

I sat on both the Central Okanagan economic committee, as well as the climate change committee.

I have certificates in land aerobics, water aerobics, osteo fit and the aging adult.

I am currently researching and developing a fitness program directed towards seniors in fall prevention and mobility training.

I have dedicated a great deal of my life to the hospitality business.

I have the courage and strength to help make Kelowna a better place to live.
