Volunteering & Associations
I am proud to say I am a Board of Director of Northumberland Central Chamber of Commerce. This long time organization has a capable networking group of successful entrepreneurs and the Business Community, and champions local business causes as well as lobbies at the government level to ensure local needs are being heard.
I have been a hands-on builder, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and I also, along with many of the agents from our office, donate $100 from every one of my sales to Habitat for Humanity to help others towards helping others towards the goal of home ownership.
I have been a member and supporter of varous local-centric event groups, including the Shop Locally Committee. This group was organized to create awarness and encourage residents to frequent and support the local shops, services, organizations and events in Northumberland County. Shopping locally feeds so many other aspects of life in our county ~ encouraging businesses to remain available to us which also retains a thriving community. Quality of life is very much helped along by the support of local businesses of our sports and entertainment events. Local suppliers of goods and services also help to create local jobs. Supporting a vibrant shops, services and entertainment sector directly relates not just on an intangible level to the opportunitites in the community but to the overall real estate value of the area.
I have been involved in various fundraising and volunteer organizations including the Shop Locally Campaign, The Oak Ridges Morraine Association, The Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxilliary, The Art in Public Spaces Committee, and have donated time for various public events to help raise funds or to promote local or international causes, such as Amnesty International and The Relay For Life Cancer Research Fundraiser. As well, I am a member of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper's organization as I feel strongly about protecting the environment, especially the water table of this large body of water of Lake Ontario that our local community surrounds and thrives on.
