Community & Volunteer


I’ve been fortunate to have many amazing people in my life supporting my goals, community involvement and work.

In an effort to Pay It Forward, here is what I’ve been up to.

Every day, millions of girls around the world are denied their basic human rights – simply because they’re girls. Because I am a Girl is a global initiative working to end gender inequality and promote girls’ rights.

Meet Ruth, a young girl living in Ghana. She is currently attending nursery school, and her closest clean water supply and health care facility is an hour away from home. I started sponsoring her in 2016 with the hope that she will receive better access to healthcare and education.

In 2010 I started volunteering in my own community with the Sun Life Financial Waterloo Busker Carnival as its Director of PR & Social Media. Although I have retired that hat, I continue to volunteer and provide pro-bono support to small businesses, entrepreneurs and young people in my community.

At The Crossroads, wrapped up in June, and I am looking forward to providing social media support to future plays by Stephen Young, At The Crossroads playwright and producer.
