Biography

I have over 15 years of leadership experience in the non-profit sector in all areas of administration, but my area of specialty is volunteerism and volunteer program management. My past work with Volunteer Edmonton and the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations was all about capacity building in the non-profit sector and also helping to connect non-profits with the private sector, and vice versa. I am passionate about volunteerism and collaboration between businesses in the private sector and non-profit and charitable organizations. I believe there is an opportunity to learn from each other and many benefits when we pursue partnerships. I have also witnessed the benefits to the staff teams from successful and meaningful involvement in the work of non-profits while representing their place of employment. Those benefits extend long after the volunteer roles are completed.
