The ESC Board is passionate, dedicated, and strives to make a change. It’s wonderful to belong to a small group of people committed to understanding, advocating, and improving the lives of people living with Epilepsy in our region.

Renee joined the Board of Directors of Epilepsy Simcoe County (ESC) in June 2017.

Feeling drawn to volunteer with an active organization that was working tirelessly to make a difference within our community, Renee quickly jumped on board.

Renee is also a parent, social justice advocate, researcher, and author. Outside of her career and volunteer work with ESC, she devotes herself to actions that advance equity for marginalized groups.

To our Board of Directors, Renee brings her attentiveness, responsiveness, and leadership.  Her skill set of being a strong advocate, a strategic thinker, and being always future-focused makes her an incredible asset to our agency.
