    Jodie Wickens is a parent and a non profit community leader working and living in the ancestral and unceded territory of the Kwikwetlem First Nation. She is a previous  member of the legislative assembly for the provincial riding of Coquitlam Burke Mountain and started her journey in politics because of her passion for equitable access to an appropriate education for all. Jodie’s first attempt at running for office was in the 2014 civic election for school board trustee. Since 2014 she has run in 2 other elections and gained a wealth of knowledge on being a candidate and what makes a campaign successful. She has a strong desire to pass along that knowledge so that other parents of children with disabilities can successfully run for office.
