Helen spent her teenage years in Cambridge on a farm near the airport and now lives in Ward 1 with her family.
She has been involved in countless community organizations, such as: founding board member of the Canadian Health Care Anti-Fraud Association; volunteered at Grand River Hospital; currently volunteers for various political campaigns; her church and board member and past president of her condominium corporation.
