Working for you since November 2009…

I was born and raised in the Kenora area, growing up at my parents’ tourist camp in Minaki. Having watched and experienced my parents build their business up from nothing – and by nothing I mean building a road and clearing land to build the camp – I was introduced at an early age to what hard work, dedication, exceptional customer service, the gift of gab and unconditional love can accomplish. It is these lessons that I apply to my everyday life.

I graduated from Red River College’s Business Administration program achieving honors with a Marketing Major in 2001. That same year, I married my high school sweetheart, Clint VanWalleghem.  Our daughter Shai is 15 and our son Jaden is 10. 

As Executive Director, I have been given the opportunity to do something amazing. Every day I get to work with the community for the community, helping your hospital help you. As an added bonus, the position allows me to balance career and family, enabling me to give 100% to both.

Working for you since January 2017…..

Kenora has been home to me for the past 14 years and I am so grateful to have built a number of relationships over my time in this amazing place.  I attribute a lot of my connections to my years having worked with both local radio stations as well as freelance work with CJBN/Shaw TV. 

I am married to lifetime resident and business owner Peter Scheibler, together we enjoy all the benefits of living in this North Western Ontario paradise with our two daughters; Abbie – 20, and Cameron – 11.    

Throughout my 14 years in Kenora, I have sat on the Board of Directors at LWDHF, possess volunteer experience with Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, and Harbourfest to name a few and continue to support our community and attend local events and activities whenever possible.

I have truly fallen in love with the generosity and community spirit of our city and I am excited to relive that day in and day out within my new position as Development Coordinator for LWDHF.
