“We have all known the long loneliness
and we have learned that the only solution is love
and that love comes with community.”
I continue to work in the community, undertaking contract and volunteer work on literacy, marketing, fundraising and various other projects.
For two and a half years I worked as as the Executive Director of the Nanaimo Unitarian Shelter.
Since leaving that position I have been volunteering in Literacy Central Vancouver Island’s Well Read bookstore, and at Volunteer Nanaimo, where I edit the newsletter and work on other marketing materials, and volunteer in the reception area of their offices.
I hold a Certificate in Fundraising Management, a Diploma in Public Relations (both BCIT), and a certificate in graphic design.
In the past I have worked with:
- Alexandra Neighbourhood House
- The Arts Council of Surrey
- BC Ministry of Education
- Children’s Writers and Illustrators of BC (CWILL BC)
- The Federation of BC Writers
- Surrey Community Services Society
- Surrey Crisis Line
- Surrey Hospice Society
- Island Roots Market Co-operative
