It was only when I started volunteering that Edmonton really began to feel like home. In my life, I have been blessed with a good education, a loving family and a rewarding career which has given me skills and abilities I can share. I use those skills to serve on the board of directors of GEOMEER and when I volunteer at local events including Pride Week, Talmud Torah’s Youth Fair and Suit Up. I am also active in my church at Sunday Mass and on different committees. If you are new to volunteering, my advice is to dive in. Research proves that people who volunteer have healthier and happier lives.
