Most of my career has been working in the not for profit sector at Hospitals (BCChildren's Hospital), Universities (University of Victoria) or community foundations (Vancouver Foundation). I planned to retire in September of 2013 and just do some consulting but i am currently the interim Executive Director at the Canadian Cancer Society, BC Yukon. however i am looking forward to them finding a new leader so i can just spend my time enjoying life and my two beautiful grandkids (which requires trips to Australia to see them!)

School Story

Although my memory of this is sketchy, my father, who is 93 and still going strong, takes great pleasure in telling the story about how opinionated I was! My good friend Sandy Clunies Ross (nee MacKay) who is now living in the Yukon with Norman, was given a detention for some minor infraction. Apparently I decided that the Principal (I think it was Fred)needed to know that if he was going to make Sandy stay "after school" then he had to get her a taxi to go home as it was his obligation and part of the school board act, etc. Can't imagine that I would have had any idea what was in the school board act - but dad was on the school board so I can only assume that I thought I knew something! Anyway the result was that Sandy didn't get the detention and I got a reputation with the prinicipal that wasn't all that positive!!

Down in New Zealand for a month working with a number of Foundations here and then off to Thailand and Bhutan for a 9 day trek. Wish i had practiced climbing mountains more in my youth living in Canyon!
