Mona has lived in North Delta going for 42 years. Growing up in an inclusive and caring community helped shape me – it is for this reason that my husband and I chose to raise our two young daughters here. I am a full-time working mom (Sr. Human Resources Partner for a Crown Corp) who believes that community service is a huge part of achieving work, life and balance. For me, whether it is donating, volunteering or being a helpful friend/neighbor- it is important to be involved with my community in my own unique way. What drives me is the realization that at any given time, anyone of us may need support in our lifetime. I have immense gratitude for the social services provided by Deltassist and the positive impact they have made in our community. It is an honor to be a Director on the Deltassist Board to witness their continued success and legacy.
