“Throughout my career I have sought out opportunities to give back to my community and to make a difference. I am very privileged to now have the opportunity to engage in work that has a direct impact on the health of people in Meaford and area communities. I know the difference that a Legacy gift can make to the quality of care delivered in Grey Bruce, and I’m passionate about helping other people understand the impact they can have on health care for generations to come.” As a resident of Meaford I am looking forward to being part of our Hospital Foundation and getting to meet our donors, staff and volunteers, as well as being involved in our events and fundraisers.
