As the Executive Director for Ashbourne, a Seniors Independent and Assisted Living Community, I am dedicated to supporting older adults to live their best authentic life. I hold a Master’s of Arts degree In Leadership which is augmented with 30 years of experience in the Non-profit sector. Twenty-five of those years have been in a leadership role. With six years in the seniors’ industry and 25 years working with people living with Intellectual disabilities, I possess a broad range of skills.
I am proud of my experiences and education, including Asset Based Community Development, Rehabilitation Practitioner, group facilitation, and presenting at Conferences. The core of my career has continuously been to respectfully support the diversity, human rights, and voices of all the people I encounter. Marginalized communities are of particular interest to me, and I am honoured to work with and for these groups. My volunteer portfolio includes several non-profit board positions, numerous human services committees, and membership in the Edmonton Rotary Club.
I have been part of the Edmonton Pride Seniors group since 2017. My contribution to EPSG includes work on the Tri-City Project, the Intergenerational Dialogue Work and currently the LGBTQ2S Seniors’ housing project. My love for collaborative project work is being put to good use with this project. I am thrilled to be part of this innovative work alongside an extraordinary group of people.
