I am one of the Owner/Operators, and Chief Executive Officer, of Calgary Alternative Support Services Inc (CASS). I have worked as a registered Social Worker for over 20 years, and as a certified Mental Health First Aid Facilitator for over 10 years. This amazing experience has provided me with the opportunity to walk with people through their experiences, and to learn and grow alongside them.
I have always felt fortunate to be a part of facilitating connection, value, and inclusion within so many circles of my life.
A large part of this has been a combination of my personal and professional journeys, in particular when it comes to one’s own mental wellness. Connection is key, as alone we may fail, but together we will strive.
What I have learned throughout my journey is, “When it rains look for rainbows, when it’s dark look for stars!”
