In November 2014 Helen followed her partner to Mahone Bay from Merrickville, Ontario (a small town very similar to Mahone Bay). Helen has run her own business almost all her working life, starting with a boarding/teaching stable on her parents farm, then moving on to own a Young Drivers of Canada Franchise for over twenty years.
Over the years Helen has spent time on the executives on Merrickville Fair Board, Theatre Night in Merrickville and was a founding member of the local Pony Club.
Helen joined the board n 2016 assuming the role of treasurer. She welcomes the chance to be a supportive member of the Mahone Bay Centre which she can see serves a very important role in the life of the people of Mahone Bay and the surrounding area.
