TFL Peer Support Facilitator
I enjoy meeting new people and getting people connected. My role at Technology For Living (TFL) is to be supportive, engaged and assist our members through different collaborations. I support new peers who are coming onto the program and also those who have been around a while! I have over thirty years’ experience volunteering in the non-profit sector and this has prepared me for my role. With my Bachelors of Arts degree in English, it has helped me in my work as well as in my leisure. I have worked on TFL projects such as the Peer History Project, Peers on Pages (POP!) writing workshop, and the Simon Cox Student Design Competition. I am an avid writer and some of my articles are featured in the Balance newsletter. I grew up in a family of nine children in Newfoundland, relocated to BC in 2013 and joined TFL in 2015. I am full of energy, when I’m not connecting with our peers, I can be found square dancing, travelling abroad and around BC. If you want to talk to me about peer issues or just have a friendly chat, send me an email or call me!
