"I have been a community home support worker for the past 13 years. I was introduced to home support during my husband’s illness: while my husband was receiving home support I realized the importance of their role as members of his health care team and the emotional support they give to the family. I am proud to be part of that team.
"I was recently elected as treasurer of component 8, I sit on the joint labour management committee and I am now first vice chair of Local 804. In addition, I am an active member of the OH&S committee, as well as a shop steward.
"In my spare time I enjoy cooking and spending quality time with my family and my wonderful grandchildren."
