The areas around Skootamatta Lake and the village of Flinton have been a second home to me for
my entire life. My roots in the area run deep, as my ancestors settled in the vicinity of Flinton in the 1850s. I have always had a natural interest in local history.
In 1976 my parents purchased a vintage cottage on Skootamatta Lake. Our family property is part
of the original ‘Loon Lake Colony’ established in the 1920s on Oborne Point. For the past 41 years my family has spent our summers at the lake and fostered many special friendships. I enjoyed watching my adult sons spend their childhood summers here. I now look forward to my grandchildren doing the same, as another generation of our family begins to create their own treasured memories at the lake.
I am privileged to have been a full-time resident of Skootamatta Lake since 2016. In addition to the SDRA, I am involved as a volunteer with the Flinton Recreation Club, the Friends of Bon Echo Park
and the Cloyne Historical Society and Pioneer Museum.
My professional background is in software training, inventory systems, merchandising and retail management.
I joined the SDRA board in 2016 and am honoured to serve as the webmaster.
I thoroughly enjoy being a part of this dedicated, collaborative and energized team!
