Sally Carefoot, Director - TBA
Christine Johns, Director – We first discovered the wonderful community of Winston Heights-Mountview in 2008 when we fell in love with a house in the area and decided to make the neighbourhood home. We love the walkable nature of the area, the great path system for biking and running and the beauty of an established neighbourhood. I joined the board in 2009 as I wanted to contribute to my community and help make it an even better place to live. In addition to the Board, I also sit on both the Development and Playground Committee. In my day job I am the Director of Planning and Reporting at the University of Calgary.
DJ Kelly, President – I am a marketing and communications professional and I joined the board in 2008 because of my passion to make Calgary and my community an even better place to live. This passion can also be seen through my previous work as a committee or board member with Calgary Economic Development and the Calgary Professional Arts Alliance and an active civic advocate. I have been president since 2009. Prior to that I served as the communications director.
Kim MacEachern, Director - My husband and I have always lived inner city and in the Fall of 2012 we found a wonderful family home and moved to Winston Heights-Mountview with our young son. We were fortunate to quickly establish relationships with several young families whose commitment to Winston Heights inspired us to volunteer for the community casino. In learning about the community’s rich history and the pride of it’s residents, I was moved to join the Board to contribute to Winston Heights-Mountview’s vibrant future. I look forward to helping make this a wonderful place for my son to grow up.
Kim McMillian, Director - TBA
Don Phillips, Treasurer – I have been a Winston Heights-Mountview resident since 2000 and a board member since 2002. I grew up in a small farming community in SW Manitoba – a “community” in every sense of the word – so I know and appreciate the value of “community”. The spirit of a community helps everyday people live everyday lives a little fuller and safer – from the sense of belonging, to the sharing of burdens and good times, to the self-worth of volunteering. A vibrant Winston Heights-Mountview community is a goal for me and I truly enjoy making my contributions. My reward is new friends, good friends and the pleasure of group achievements.
Alex Reed, Vice President - I moved to Calgary in 1997 and my family and I have lived in Winston Heights-Mountview since 2003. I was on the committee that built the playground next to the community centre in 2007, and led the committee that constructed the new playground in Victory Park in 2011. I have been a board member and vice-president for the association since then. At work, I am an engineer in the oil industry. The founders of the association in 1947 got the following right: We should “work together to build a good community for ourselves and our children, and to make this one of the beauty spots of Calgary”.
Carolyn Slipp, Secretary - It is with great enthusiasm that I am serving as Secretary for this very active Community Association. My husband, John and I moved to Winston Heights-Mountview in October 2004 and realized very quickly that it is a wonderful neighbourhood. Recently, I began tutoring two Grade One girls in reading from Winston Heights Elementary school and I look forward to working with them again for their Grade Two year. I hope to make a valuable impact toward this community and I’m eager to meet many more of our neighbours.
Stacy Nephin, Director - TBA
Mary-Beth Walsh, Director - I have lived in Winston Heights for the last 5 years and my family and I love this neighbourhood! For the last two years, I’ve coordinated the Moms and Tots group for the community and I really enjoy spending time building relationships with other parents in the community. My husband Kelvin and I have two wonderful children, Lily and Emily. I decided to join the board after spending time on the Playground Build Committee.
Sarah Whately, Director - My husband and I moved to the Winston Heights-Mountview community three years ago. We love the community’s diversity and enjoy the parks and amenities it has to offer. By volunteering as Communications Chair, I hope to help maintain the community’s vibrancy and diversity and assist in the storytelling of each one of its members.
