Biography

from their website
Kathleen has been a champion for working families, helping to build equitable and inclusive communities. As the owner of KMJ Coaching and Consulting, she has worked to address racism and discrimination in companies, organization, and schools. Proud of her Caribbean heritage, she is helping to build a future where racism, discrimination, homophobia, and transphobia have no place in Canada.

A single parent of five, Kathleen has felt the challenges of raising children with Autism, ADHD, and learning disabilities. She knows every family should be able to see a doctor when they need one. She believes we can make our healthcare system truly universal by allowing everyone to access their prescription medication, dental care, and mental health services with their health card – not their credit card.

Kathleen saw the impact of the pandemic on workers and small businesses in Calgary Heritage. She knows when we needed help the most Justin Trudeau left us behind. While Canada’s wealthiest made record profits, everyday people struggled. She believes we can create a pandemic recovery that works for our communities – not the 1%. She understands Canada’s pandemic recovery needs to be sustainable, create good jobs, tackle the climate crisis, and ensure no one is left behind.

A dedicated volunteer, Kathleen sits on the board of Humanist Canada and has served as an ambassador for the Carifest Caribbean Festival. Kathleen learned to express herself in writing, poetry, and music at an early age and she has had the opportunity to read her original poetry at The Glenbow Museum. She holds a degree in Sociology and Cultural Anthropology from Carleton University, a Paralegal Diploma from Canadian Business College, and is a Certified Life Coach with Certified Coaches Federation. She has recently acquired a Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion with Cornell University's ECornell.

Kathleen is ready to be a strong voice fighting for you in Ottawa.
