Community

“We have all known the long loneliness
and we have learned that the only solution is love
and that love comes with community.”
Dorothy Day

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

Start where you are.
Use what you have.
Do what you can.
