I grew up in a household that promoted civic responsibility. While Vice-President of the Kiwanis Club of St. James (Winnipeg), I clearly remember my father fundraising to help build a pediatric wing at our local hospital.
Through the years, I have volunteered on many boards and committees. I was granted an opportunity to help shape policy and play a part in building a stronger community.
I was honored to serve alongside many gifted individuals from all walks of life. Those years of civic service helped me gain a diverse spectrum of experience to bring to the Kiwanis International Board.
Examples of my civic work are:
- Owen Sound City Councillor
- Chair of Police Services
- President of Regional Tourism Association
- President of Chamber of Commerce
- Director on Board of Public Health
