Ward 6 - Fiona Gilbert

F_Gilbert.jpgFiona Gilbert, Trustee for Ward 6 and Board Vice Chair, is currently serving her second term as Trustee for Rocky View Schools, after being first elected in 2013. Ward 6 represents schools in the Town of Cochrane.

Fiona migrated to Alberta from Ontario in 1997 to work at The Banff Centre for Continuing Education and although the plan was to stay only for a couple of years, Alberta had her hooked and she has called Alberta home ever since. Fiona and her husband moved to Cochrane in 2007, where she discovered the small town atmosphere was a great place to raise their young family.

Fiona believes that public education is the foundation of our communities and her goal is to help build and shape this foundation, with the help and input of all stakeholders, to ensure that our public education system is equitable, accountable and transparent, and serves the needs of all in our community. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelor of Education.

Fiona currently lives in Cochrane with her husband and two children who attend RancheView School where she is an active volunteer and School Council member. She also serves as a community member on the Cochrane Community Awards Committee and the Cochrane and Area Early Childhood Development Coalition.

Fiona enjoys family movie nights, mini-getaways to the mountains, and peaceful escape to the woods, and can often be found connecting with community, friends, and family over a cup of coffee at one of the many local coffee shops in Cochrane.
