You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” – Robin Williams

BIO: A native of the Eastern Townships, I spent my childhood in Huntingville, growing up in the family home built by my great-grandfather.  Although I would say I was a bit more of an athlete than a student in high school, I went on to become a fairly serious student while pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Honours Sociology, earning the University Prize in Sociology from Bishop’s University and completing minors in the fields of Women’s Studies, Gerontology and Criminology.

Fortunate to have been hired as Coordinator of the Lennoxville Youth Center not long after my return to the Sherbrooke area in 2008, I have enjoyed tremendously the work I’ve been involved in within the community sector.  Through the Center’s involvement with the Regroupement des Maisons des Jeunes des Cantons de l’Est, I was able to network and collaborate with colleagues in the youth sector from across the Townships in an effort to bring young Townshippers together for countless activities and educational opportunities.  I have also been an active fund-raiser for many years supporting several community-based initiatives as well as national campaigns supporting research into women’s health and well-being including the Run for a Cure and more recently, the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.

I am happy to serve the broader English-speaking community through Townshippers’ Association and I love the opportunity to work with different groups of volunteers and our dedicated staff towards encouraging, and ensuring, the vitality of the English-speaking community’s cultural identity.

Random facts:Originally from Huntingville, Quebec. Joined Townshippers’ in 2012.

I love the Townships…The Eastern Townships is a remarkable place to be at any age.  From Thetford Mines to Farnham, the Townships have something to offer everyone: outdoorsmen, athletes, families, academics, professionals, the list goes on and on.   Bustling city centres give way to lush farmland and country living, and then there are the people. The sense of community and the willingness to help your neighbour that run through these regions are truly remarkable.

Sage Words: Trust your instincts – that feeling in your gut isn’t indigestion.
