My husband and I began attending the Good Shepherd in May of 2006 after being recommended this parish by friends in Kelowna. We were warmly welcomed in by all of the parishioners and felt at home almost instantly!
I've held various roles at the Good Shepherd, including Sunday School Coordinator and teacher, Administrative Assistant and Communications Coordinator. All of these roles have given me great joy in being able to serve God and my church community. Both of my children were baptized at the Good Shepherd (fun fact: my son was the 500th person to be baptized at the Good Shepherd!).
I love donating blood (sounds weird, I know) and I aim to make my 40th donation on my 40th birthday. I've been volunteering at Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids since February of 2021 and have truly enjoyed getting to know the group of individuals that work and volunteer for this amazing organization. My other favourite activities include geocaching, baking, thrifting, genealogy research and exploring various parks and playgrounds throughout the city with my family.
