    Executive Director

    A little bit about myself, I have over 14 years’ experience both within the non-profit and private sector, managing a variety of groups of people within various industries. I made the choice to work within the non-profit sector to make a difference in people’s lives. Wanting to be able to provide a better life for the future generations in our community.

    At the Sudbury Women’s Centre I have been hired as the Executive Director. I play a crucial role in supporting the services through accounting and financial matters. I complete multiple grant and funding operations and work directly with funders and sponsors. Meeting with community partners is another important element in my position; always looking for partnerships to strengthen our community.
