I have a BSc in Statistic but have been on long term disability since 1988. I am very active as a volunteer working in the Mental Health system and with the homeless population in Toronto. I am the Co-Chair of the Particpant's Council at NYGH and am also the Hospital rep on the Ontario Association of Patient Councils. I am also the Vice President of the Board of Director's at Toronto North Support Services an agency that provides Case Management Services to the Mentally Ill and runs a Street Outreach Program helping the Homeless population in our city. I have also had the pleasure of being invited by the Ministry of Health to sit on several Steering Committees.
