In 2007 our twins Megan and Connor were born and due to complications they had to spend 4 months at Victoria General Hospital’s Neonatal intensive care unit. We were overwhelmed with the support we received not only from friends and family, but also from YANA (You Are Not Alone) that supported us so we could look after our twins. YANA is a great example of what makes the Comox Valley an amazing place to live.
- As Treasurer and President of CYMC (the Comox Valley Youth Music
Centre)I was able to make sound financial decisions to get the organization back from the brink of financial collapse. Although we had to make tough decisions, they were necessary to allow the organization to survive. And through teamwork with other arts organizations helped the Comox Valley be the 2007 Cultural Capital of Canada.
- I am proud of my volunteer work as a Rotarian in the Comox Valley. I have worked since 2003 with Rotary Youth Exchange, helping local students study abroad, as well as have international students come to the Comox Valley to live for a year. As President of the Strathcona Sunrise Rotary
ClubI was able to help create a vision for our club. I was able to donate $10,000 to the Hospice Society, towards their dream of building a residential care facility. I also donated $5000 to Jeneece Place located at the Victoria General Hospital, where families can stay while their children receive critical health care. Rotary has allowed me to make a difference not only in the Comox Valley,but internationally as well.
- I have been fortunate enough to be able to support many organizations in the Comox Valley since 2003 including Rotary, YANA, Child Development, CYMC, MusicFest, Habitat for Humanity, Hospice, Elder College, Probus, the Comox Valley Airshow and the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce.
As founder and president of My Tech Guys in 2006, I have not only helped the company survive through very difficult
