Nominated by: Sue Robertson

My involvement within the sport of Field Hockey spans 35 years, initially as a player at the high school, club and varsity levels, then as an executive member for the former Oakville Hornets Field Hockey Club and coach, and most recently as an umpire.  I also have experience in several volunteer roles with the Oakville Hornets Girls Hockey Association (team manager, treasurer and trainer) and the Oakville Soccer Club (team manager and trainer). Outside of sports, I was a board member for the Halton Centre of Childcare, a not for profit daycare in Oakville and have had various technical and EHS committee roles within the Canadian and US plastics and packaging industries. As a parent of a player who has seen their daughter grow from a high school player to a member of Field Hockey Canada’s Junior Women’s Development Squad and the Women’s Indoor National Program I have very good understanding of the successes and challenges faced by field hockey programs in Ontario and nationally. 

 

I am now fortunate to be in a position where I have the time available to take a more active role in Field Hockey Ontario and give back to this great community.

 

As a Director or Officer FHO, the top three things I would like FHO to focus on in the next year are:

1.  Membership value and growth

2.  High performance programs

3.  Skills development – player, coaches and umpires
