Kimberly Calderbank For Ward 2 Burlington

WHO I AM

Born and raised in Burlington, my roots are deep in this Community. Growing up in Aldershot, I graduated from Aldershot High School with Honours. I have always played an active role in my Community and received both the Rotary Club and Lions Club Leadership awards at a young age.

As a graduate of Brock University with a degree in Sociology and History, I use my background in the study of Human Behaviour, Human Rights, and Policy to apply compassion and understanding in everything I do. I also completed a post-graduate program in Public Relations and Communications which has led to work in many roles for Burlington’s most significant Community events and initiatives.

I am the proud Mom of two wonderful little individuals. My son is in grade one at Central Public School (Go Lynx!) and my daughter has recently turned 3 years old. My children participate in many of the recreational activities offered in Burlington from swimming, soccer, and music (lessons taken at the music centre) and are big fans of our Burlington Libraries.
