Meet Our Board of Directors

I joined the Community Links Board in order to take the opportunity to use my experience to give back to our community. I come from an extensive background in the not for profit sector starting out as an in home family therapist and then moving into Leadership. My international background includes the delivery, development and implementation of evidence based models of therapy for positive outcomes working with children, youth, families and women.

I look forward to gaining an understanding of the rising demand for Services and Programs and helping to meet the needs of the residents of Airdrie. My extensive background in the energy industry has provided me with an ability to communicate with and grow positive relationships with staff, clients and colleagues at all levels of the organization.

In the short time I've lived here, I've come to understand the vital role that Community Links plays in the region. Airdrie is growing and so are the needs of its citizens, and I want to be a part of an organization that enriches lives in so many ways. I will draw on my legal background, together with the knowledge I've gained volunteering with non-profits, to support the dedicated people who make Community Links so effective.
