As an active volunteer with United Way of Winnipeg for twenty years, including two years as Chair of the Board of Trustees, she was involved in the evolution of the organization from one as primarily a fundraiser and funder of agencies to an organization that is seen as a catalyst for addressing root causes – with partner agencies, and with the community, partners and stakeholders more broadly.
