I work with the following motto in mind: to strive to do better than the day before for all of the youth and youth serving agencies we serve. I enjoy celebrating the fact that the work we do helps to support thousands of youth nation wide. In my off time I enjoy tennis, biking, country music and country fairs, the SENS (truly the only good NHL team), volunteering, concerts, Pizza and Poutine, my home town, and my puppy – Teddy! I bring a wealth of knowledge, skills and training in youth service work to this position. I have a deep passion for community involvement and I actively volunteer with many organizations locally, provincially and nationally. I am excited to continue my journey with YCC because the more we increase the active participation and partnership with young people, the better we serve them, and the more comprehensively we work with them as service partners, the more we increase our public value to the entire community.
