She has worked in health, social services, employment policy, policy, program development, advocacy and professional association environments – all with a strong work focus on helping meet needs of older persons.
She has developed creative programming, elder abuse specialty programs, senior learning and teaching programs, specialized counselling services.
She has responded to changes in government legislation as it has impacted the lives of elders, chaired community, professional and institutional committees and presented in high profile government and press environments on behalf of elders.
