Reason I volunteer: If you are going to join a club or organization in your community then put your heart and soul into it. Get involved! Sitting on the sideline doesn’t make the organization any better. By joining the M.L.Hospital Board I hope to be a benefit to the board and help make the task of fundraising for the local health authority a bit easier. I have always found the Hospital Foundation to be a great organization and what they do benefits the WHOLE community. It is a great feeling to be involved with like minded people.

Connie was born and raised in Meadow Lake and works at
Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp.
She loves being a part of the foundation as the hospital is for everyone, and meets the needs of our community. The more services/equipment our hospital offers means less traveling for our community members and better care in emergency situations.
Shelley moved to Meadow Lake 34 years ago and has been in the medical field for 38 years. In the past, she has worked at the Meadow Lake Associate Clinic and at the Turtleford Hospital. For the past 20 years, she's been working at the Meadow Lake Hospital. She is married and has 3 sons. They enjoy camping and fishing together. She is looking forward to working the the Foundation!
Occupation: Registered Massage Therapist and Fitness Trainer
Reason I volunteer: I LOVE to help people! Although I’ve done volunteer work in the past when my daughter was a “wee one”, that was a long time ago! I’m excited to get back to serving our community. I joined the Meadow Lake Hospital Foundation in July 2016 and I’m looking forward to serving locally.
