Submitted by the Gwen O'Mahony Campaign
Gwen O'Mahony makes her living looking out for people's well being. With specialized training in Biochemistry, Microbiology and Pre Med, she works as a health advocate, managing budgets, training, and policy development for organizations.
Her well rounded life experience also includes various past positions in the private sector which helped her to understand the many challenges facing small and medium sized businesses - the engines of Canada's economy.
Gwen's tenacity has kept her on the campaign trail ever since she was asked to run for office in the Provincial election of 2009. Over this past year, she has visited Lillooet, Cache Creek, Lytton, Pemberton, Wallachean, Lake Erroch, Agassiz… knocking on thousands of doors, attending public meetings and supporting individuals who request her assistance. Gwen's tireless dedication to local residents in this electoral area Chilliwack/Fraser Canyon, has demonstrated her high values and integrity, traits frequently only hoped for by many disillusioned voters today.
Having served as past president of the Abbotsford Rotaract, a college and career extension of the Rotary, Gwen is also admired for her involvement in community environmental issues and is not afraid to take a tough stand when it comes to protecting our childrens' future living habitat. Striking a healthy balance by working for more employment opportunities through sustainable jobs, along with helping to preserve the environment, is a goal she is determined to achieve.
Actively engaged in her community and running as the NDP candidate for Chilliwack / Fraser Canyon 2011, Gwen lives in Chilliwack, where she is raising her two nieces.
