Mona Attard: Originally from Toronto, my family moved to Timmins, Ontario when I was very young. Following high school, I completed undergraduate and graduate degrees in Psychology at McMaster and U of T, after which I returned to Timmins to work at the local Children’s Mental Health Center. Our agency provided services to children and families in communities throughout the northeast region. My formal roles included Child and Family Therapist / Clinician and Psychometrist. Among the many good memories I have of working in this field is having had the opportunity to assist in rolling out the services associated with the Young Offenders Act beginning in 1984. I used my skills and experience as a Psychometrist to provide assessments to the courts to assist judges in determining sentences / outcomes for young offenders. My days at the agency also afforded me some of the most enduring friendships ever. In 1989, I entered the MBA program at the Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario. Upon graduating, I launched into a 23-year career providing Change Management and Organization Design consulting services to corporations and government organizations at all levels throughout Canada and the US. I retired from consulting in 2010, spent a few years travelling, then moved from Markham to Cobourg in August of 2013. Although I’m still relatively new to Cobourg, I’ve met many wonderful people here and am enjoying involving myself in this delightful community.
Louise Balaam, I have many years’ experience in the corporate world, as well as running my own business, I am proficient in all aspects of accounting. I have worked as a teacher and studied to become a chef. Ten years ago i completed my degree as a counsellor, which led me to Rebound. I have always had a passion for working with youth and during my career as a teacher, I started a youth club in the community as a way to offer a safe place for teenagers to hang out. My biggest and most fulfilling work has been has been when I was connecting with youth. I have always wanted to help young people find their full potential. As a volunteer at Rebound for the last ten years, I have been fortunate to work with an amazing staff. Together, we have had the privilege of helping Northumberland youth get back on track. It brings great joy to see so many young people who - at some point - have made poor decisions, have the opportunity to complete programming through Rebound and continue on to careers as successful young adults. I am a member of the Youth Justice Diversion Program, Choices Program, On-TRAC as well as other programs offered by this agency. Each program brings much success in Northumberland County and we hope to continue this fine work for many more years.
Katie Foley: My relationship with Rebound began in 2003, when I joined the organization as a summer student. Upon completion of a BA in Criminal Justice and Public Policy at the University of Guelph, I was engaged by Rebound as a Child & Youth Case Worker, where I gained invaluable experience working with young persons. After developing an understanding of the programs and gaining critical hands-on experience in my field, I moved to Toronto to work at the corporate offices of the Youth Justice Services Division (YJSD), within the Ministry of Children & Youth Services.
In the last several years my priorities have been geared towards our young family, and I we returned to Cobourg where we have been living and working for 7 years. In 2014, we became the Franchisees for Fisher’s Foodland, and we are so very happy to be a part of this community: as a family, as volunteers and as local business owners. Currently, I am a volunteer at our children’s school and also sit as a board member for the Children’s Foundation as well as Rebound Child & Youth Services.
