I was hired in September ’97 as Avail CPA’s very first Director of First Impressions!! Through the many years, the clients and I have grown to be like family members – shared laughter and tears; good times and bad. And many, many hugs! Sometimes a sincere hug means more than a million words!

Best Road Trip
Whenever my backwoods, mountain “short cut” becomes longer and more interesting than the “normal, well-travelled” route.
“Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops.”
Ideal Day Off
Tent camping in the mountains on the Crown Land, near flowing water, and being one with nature – I am such a child of the 70’s!
Bucket List (future-highlight)
I have a “Bucket List”, which is a “must do”. And then I have a “someday list”. You know, the one when you say ‘someday I’d like to go there’ ‘someday I’d like to do that.’ Thank goodness my ‘bucket’ is much shorter than my ‘someday’ list.
The bucket list, last item… To spend at least a month in Ireland, with a rented car and going wherever my wee heart pleases me, listening to uilleann pipes and bodhrans in pubs. Perhaps having a pint or two of Guinness? This IS planned for 2018!!! I AM going!!
Someday List…. Stonehenge. Grand Canyon. Yellowstone National Park. The East Coast. Never been to Mexico, slap that on the ‘someday’ list. Tuscany. The Louvre. San Francisco. Too much? See? Maybe someday….
Inspiration/Superpower/I’m Passionate About/Personal Strength
All wrapped into one… I have MS. (but it doesn’t have me!) Did you know that there are an estimated 100,000 Canadians living with MS? Bet you know one or two. https://mssociety.ca/about-ms
There are so many people out there that are disabled because of this disease – they inspire me to walk 10km every year for them in the MS Walk. I walk because I still can. Because so many can’t. My ‘superpower’ is that I can and have raised A LOT of money thru the years for those same people that inspire me. Can you tell I’m passionate about this cause? The personal strength is the support and help I get every single year for this very important walk. Without my family & friends & team members & our awesome clients I couldn’t do what I do for the MS Society. This is a public “Thank You” to those of you that have helped and continue to help me with this cause so near & dear to my heart! (Okay, now I’ll get off my soapbox….)
