I have been involved with the PKD Foundation of Canada for many years, as a volunteer for the Chapter and Walk Coordinator in Toronto, and currently hold the role of Executive Director for the Foundation. My life has been deeply impacted by polycystic kidney disease (PKD) – both my mother and grandmother were diagnosed with the disease when I was young. As a result I have always been passionate about the importance of self-advocacy, volunteerism and community involvement.

I look forward to establishing this York Region Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada and supporting those in the local community who are affected by polycystic kidney disease.
