Family/Pets:

Fun Facts:

My first job was at Tim Hortons when I was 14, which I believe is a prerequisite to being Canadian. I’ve won several customer service and sales awards during my many years in retail. I’ve been on the Blue Jays jumbo screen 3 times, but never aware of it. I used to dance ballet and jazz, play softball and paddle on a war canoe team. Now with my son, I visit Maplecrest Village Retirement Residence weekly to connect and spend time with our older generation. Q: If the whole Community were listening, what would you say to them? Just take a minute to connect with the people around you, that is what makes a community. We all love Grimsby for the small-town feel, so let’s just remember to wave to one another!

Q: What makes you laugh?

I make myself laugh more than I should probably publicly admit.

Q: What does the word Community mean to you?

To me, the word community means to band together, to care about and respect the people and environment around you. Perhaps we need to first assume the best in people, rather than the opposite.

Q: What is the best advice you’ve been given?

I was once told, “strive to be like those who hold the qualities you admire most.” It’s always good to have an example to follow.

Q: If you could possess one super-human power, what would it be?

Easy peasy, flying.

Q: What is your favourite movie of all time?

Oh dear, I’m terribly indecisive. It’s a toss-up between The Lion King and Gladiator. Who am I kidding, it’s The Sound of Music.

Q: What’s your favourite vacation spot?

Tahiti. I’ll verify that when I’ve actually gone. But I’m pretty sure Tahiti.

Q: what brings you the greatest joy or satisfaction?

Besides my kids and husband, I enjoy music, cooking and any sort of artistic creation

Q: What is one thing that very few people would know about you?

A lot of people don’t know that I’m surprisingly reserved.
