Tell us more about your role at the PMFRC and the programs that you are involved in.
I provide new and current families with information about the PMFRC’s programs and services. I make sure they are well settled, and are directed accordingly when they have questions. I also educate families different programs and events that are happening in the community.
How long have you worked for the PMFRC?
Tell me about your background (experience, education, etc.)
I graduated high school in 2013 but have no further schooling (yet). Since graduating, the majority of work I’ve done has been in customer service and administration.
What can people expect to see when they first meet you?
Someone who is happy and willing to help out however I can.
What is your favourite part about working for the PMFRC?
Connecting with families and sharing similar stories, being able to give a sense of home by providing clients with as much information about the area as possible, and making them feel welcome.
What is your greatest accomplishment or proudest moment working for the PMFRC?
I couldn’t be happier to have joined this team, I am proud to work for the PMFRC. In the few months I’ve been here, I’ve learned so much about the area and community. I am glad to be able to pass my knowledge on to newcomers!
Where are you from and what brought you to Petawawa? How long have you lived here?
I moved from Embrun, ON to Petawawa in 2015 to live with my then-boyfriend -- who is now my husband.
What advice do you have for families transitioning to Petawawa?
Check out our Family Centre location (12 Reichwald Cr.). They can give you all of the information you need to start your new life here!
What is your favourite thing about living in the area? What is your favourite thing to do in the winter? The summer?
My favourite part is the scenery (parks/trails). In the summer I love walking the paths, kayaking or even fishing. However, during the winter I usually find something to do indoors because I do not like the cold.
Leave us with a few words of wisdom -- what is your favourite quote?
“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backwards; so when life pulls you back with difficulties, it just means it will launch you into something great!”
