Monica - ECVO Volunteer

Two days a week you’ll find me volunteering at the Seniors Association of Greater Edmonton (SAGE). If I’m not there, I might be down the street volunteering at the Winspear Centre or around the corner at the Don Wheaton YMCA. I arrived in Canada three years ago and knew nobody. I stopped by the restaurant at SAGE one day and thought, “oh, I like this place”. Before I knew it, I had signed up to volunteer. I’ve met new people and after 49 years working as a nurse, volunteering has broadened my horizons. I’ve been an usherette, a receptionist, and at the moment I’m learning to be an aqua aerobics instructor.
