I have been involved with CMHA since 1992, first serving with CMHA Thunder Bay Branch 1992 – 2003, and 2012 – present. I have served on many committees during these years, including but not limited to, Finance, Governance, and Resource Development, and am currently Chair of the Board. I have greatly enjoyed my experiences with CMHA. Ontario Division, 2003-2005 and 2008-2017, as Chair, Finance Member, Audit Member, and Governance Member. As I am passionate about mental health, committed to CMHA, and remain connected to the Thunder Bay Branch and Ontario Board, my goal is to serve on the National Board to my fullest ability, helping to see initiatives through to completion, as we move forward with strategies to help CMHA grow and achieve further successes across Canada.
