I am a proud Torontonian and a proud Canadian running to be your next Conservative Member of Parliament in Don Valley North to bring common sense to federal policies and work to make like more affordable.

The discontent and disappointment in Canada right now spurs me on to run and energizes me to run. I’m ready to tackle the issues of today, listen to the residents of Don Valley North, and put together policies to help people.

I have spent my life devoted to helping others through teaching, community volunteering, and more recently cybersecurity and online privacy.

After having taught high school Biology and Chemistry, and adult education, I became a
successful entrepreneur, creating a private career college and a consulting business.

My education credentials start with earning a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry, then a Master of
Education from The George Washington University, and finally a PhD in Higher Education from
the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. More recently I have
earned cybersecurity certificates from Harvard University and the New York University.

I have contributed to several start-ups and am currently on the Advisory Board of a Toronto
company in the tech sector. Having started companies myself, I understand and appreciate the
work ethic needed for small business owners and I consistently champion the entrepreneurs and
innovators who are creating jobs and building our economy.

As an active community volunteer and leader, I have helped with great institutions such as the
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and Shoreline Clean-Up. I served as Vice
Chair of the Board of the Breast Cancer Society of Canada (now Breast Cancer Canada), and
chaired two TDSB Parent School Councils.

Currently, I sit on the Board of Trustees for the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and serve as
President of my condo corporation Board.

I believe in helping our youth with opportunities and support to build the self-esteem and skills
they will need to thrive. That makes me passionate about supporting and mentoring our youth
and have done so with Hispanic/Latino students at Ryerson University (now TMU) and other
young women university scholars at various institutes.

A dedicated Conservative, I was the candidate for Don Valley North in 2021, Toronto organizer
of 11 ridings on Pierre Poilievre’s successful leadership campaign, a Vice President of Ontario
PC Women in Politics, an EDA President, a campaign manager, and a volunteer on numerous
campaigns in Toronto and the GTA.

Through my political volunteering, I always work to bring more people into the party by sharing
who we are as Conservatives and valuing each and every person. Listening to volunteers,
respecting them, and helping them find where and how they want to volunteer is very important
to me. Everybody is welcome – always.

My husband, Juan Carlos Zuniga-Pflucker, and I have made Toronto our home for 30 years. He
is a world renown scientist and professor at the University of Toronto with his research lab at the
Sunnybrook Research Institute. Our oldest son Nicolas is a successful civil engineer. Riley, our
youngest, is now studying Library Technician coursework in a Seneca/York program.

I believe strongly in the future of Canada. I believe in the strength of the innovative spirit in
Canada to solve problems, create jobs and housing, and build a more prosperous future.

As your next Member of Parliament, I will be a proud part of Pierre Poilievre’s team when our
Conservative government leads Canada into economic recovery.

I will be your strong voice for Don Valley North.

Join with me, contact my campaign, and together we will Bring Common Sense to Canada!
