I like to stay involved in my community; I work with Edmonton’s NextGen, I also work with the province as an instructor – helping teach nonprofit organizations about board governance and how to be great not-for-profits. I think it’s an important thing to do. It’s also a great learning experience and quite rewarding as well. For me, it’s a no-brainer! Volunteering is a big part of my life, helping make Edmonton a better place brings me a lot of joy. Canada is better thanks to volunteers across the country. Volunteerism builds communities and opens up a dialogue between groups that otherwise may not occur.
