What is your favourite Y memory?
My favourite Y memory is all encompassing having spent my childhood summers at YCC as a camper and then as staff and building the most amazing inspiring friendships and connections that still remain with me today. My most vivid memory is my Jr. CIT canoe trip; eventful, adventurous, lots of laughter and lots of tears!!
Why did you join the Y’s board?
My journey to the Y board began with joining the YCC Camp Management Committee last year. Now that my kids are YCC campers, it revived my passion and connection to the camp and being on the CMC brought me even closer. Joining the Y board was an opportunity to increase my contribution and expand the value that I can add to the entire Y organization.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I have always wanted to complete a full marathon but it seems my legs don’t have the talent to persevere that distance!
Who are your real life heroes?
My parents who have supported and loved me unconditionally my entire life. They are my best friends and even in my adulthood, their happiness and health comes from seeing their children and grandchildren thrive.
When and/or where were you happiest?
I am at my happiest when I’ve reached the summit of a high mountain that I have climbed. Feeling like you have climbed to the top of the world is so empowering!
