About OnSite

OnSite is a Non-Profit Corporation with 501 3(c) status operating as "OnSite Relief Inc."

Devastating natural disasters happen around the world every year. Hurricanes, floods, tornados and other disasters displace hundreds of thousands of people. Families left homeless by disasters face an uncertain future and usually confront dire housing needs as they struggle to rebuild their lives.

OnSite recognizes the need to provide assistance and solutions to help these families recover. The OnSite team works with the family and community in disaster mitigation, and long-term recovery initiatives to address the recovery needs that arise from natural disasters.

After graduating from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Commerce I worked as an auditor. After only a year I changed careers and started working in web development. During this period I developed, designed and marketed a bridal community servicing wedding vendors named www.bridalspace.com

In 2007 my focus shifted to something more important and larger than myself...helping others. Starting OnSite is the most fulfilling venture of my life.

In Winter 2008 I took a semester off and spent a few months volunteering with Onsite Relief in New Orleans. After graduating, I decided to return to New Orleans and Onsite as the Project Manager.

I was ready for a change and got into the internet space in 2000 when I moved to Canada and started my life as a serial entrepreneur.
I started an online dating site in 2000 and learnt internet marketing in the school of hard knocks. I have been involved in the sales of internet marketing services including SEO since 2003.

Born and raised in Burlington, Vermont. I graduated in 1992 from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor's in Nutritional Sciences.

While living in Oregon, I worked as a personal trainer, aerobics instructor and a physical therapy aide. In 1999 I moved to Amherst, Massachusetts.

I grew up in Weston, Ontario where I met, and later married, my husband Barry. We moved to Georgetown where we raised our family. Thirty-one years later we moved to Collingwood. I am now retired from a 26 year career in the teaching profession. Having lost both my ten year old son and my husband to cancer I became dedicated to pursuing my own good health and promoting it to others. This led me to become a distributor for Juice Plus. I also enjoy Tai Chi, grow a few of my own vegetables and am a firm believer in organic foods. I am an active member of Beta Sigma Phi, my local Probus organization and Collingwood’s Cinema Club.

Birthplace: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Education: Weston Collegiate, Lakeshore Teachers' College, University of Toronto, York University
Interests: pursuing and promoting good health, tai chi, painting, travel, writing memoirs, fostering dogs for the Humane Society, spending time with my dog Luka, and going to my favourite place: the beach
