The last 25 years were spent in the UK where she ran a picture framing/gift shop in a small English village which was the home of the author Roald Dahl. She was on the village's Chamber of Trade and the local Parish Council. Upon returning home she sought a local Cobourg charity to support as she joined 100 Women with Heart, and that's where Rebound came in. Rebound especially appealed as it's for youth and I have a grandson. As she learned more about Rebound she knew that their board was the right place for her. Additionally, she is involved at the Cobourg Community Centre playing pickleball and golf and she is a convenor for the Ontario Senior Games.

Neil Torrie: Neil taught locally for 27 years, and was the program lead for the Centre for Individual Studies when he recently retired.
