Making people feel at ease and heard.
Community and relationships!
I own a not-for-profit charity called Hats On Dufferin that has the goal of ensuring that no person in Dufferin County goes cold during our harsh winters. Each school and charity in our region gets handmade hats, mittens and scarves. To date we’ve donated over 10,000 items! Helping communities to work together and ensuring that residents are thriving is one of my passions! I am the vice chair of the Grand Valley BIA, and the the treasurer for Community Living Dufferin.
Owning two businesses. A retail home decor and gift store and a restaurant.
According to my kids I already am Super Woman (mainly because they like the lasso and I have a lasso).
I live with my husband (Yves) and two daughters (5 (Mya) & 12 (Amy) and our new kitten (Ore-Yo), dog (Sophy) and rabbit (Zeusy). We all have a Y in our name.
