Born and raised in Germany, Ute immigrated to Canada with her parents and sister in 1982. Ute moved to the Columbia Valley in 1988, starting out in Fairmont and then to Canal Flats where she raised her two daughters.
In 2016 she found a new home in Invermere. Having worked here for over 10 years, she had always known that this was a wonderful community, however, she never expected to be welcomed and embraced with such warmth as she was after moving here. This prompted her to want to give back by running in the 2018 election. Being successful in getting on Council allows her to work hard for this incredible place and its people.
Just prior to the election in 2018, she was appointed as a director for Family Dynamix. After being elected, Council appointed her to the Lake Windermere Ambassadors and the Imagine Invermere Committee. All of these groups make important contributions to the District of Invermere and she looks forward to working with them.
We have an amazing community and Ute is proud to have the opportunity to serve the people of Invermere.
