Program Coordinator
Brief info

Before joining AHPCA, Betty worked at a local hospice as a unit clerk. Seeing the incredible difference volunteers made in the hospice setting, she became the volunteer coordinator. Betty understood how palliative did not mean dying and watched as the volunteers made sure everyone felt like they were truly living even in hospice care. Betty has worked closely with volunteers for about eight years. After completing the Volunteer Management Leadership Program, she worked alongside volunteers providing support in a hospice setting. Betty ran the You're Not Alone - Grief Connection program which matched volunteers to grieving Albertans who were looking for support after the death of a loved one.

Betty receives a great deal of her energy watching the amazing interaction between volunteers and the people they serve, and is humbled when she sees the compassion and selflessness in action. When she is not on the telephone or writing emails, you will find Betty in the parks or out for a drive looking to capture some great bird photographs!
