Now a resident of Cumberland for almost 10 years, Koreen and her family moved from Calgary, Alberta to Orléans in 2004 with 2 children under 2 in tow. New to the area, the OCRC was a much welcome resource that she regularly accessed.

She has held direct care and leadership roles in diverse practice settings, including: hospitals, continuing care, non for profits, Health Canada, Public Health Agency of Canada, Canadian Armed Forces, and the Canadian Red Cross.
Being a member of the Board is an opportunity for Koreen to give back to a Centre that has made a significant impact on her family over the years. When not working, she can be found outside, year-round, enjoying the Cumberland trails.

“I am excited to join the OCCRC Board of Directors and eager to make a difference in my community! I am committed to bringing a rural as well as a francophone perspective to the table, all the while advocating for the unique needs of older adults.”
In the 1980’s and the 1990’s, Christine graduated with a college diploma in specialized education techniques and she received a Bachelor’s degree in social work and later, a certificate in Gestalt psychotherapy.
During a career that spanned 25 years, Christine also received training, and attended a variety of workshops and conferences related to continuing education.
When Christine unfortunately lost her job as a result of downsizing, she turned this difficult period in her life into a positive opportunity. She decided to invest her time and to become a volunteer and to help others by sharing her skills and knowledge.
To that end, she joined a number of local organizations and last year, she joined the OCCRC Board of Directors which she has found to be a great match for her skills, and a simulating environment that is aligned with her customer-focused approach.
She enjoys her experience on the OCCRC Board, and appreciates the Board’s mandate and its members, as well as her responsibilities as Board member.
