Linda joined PLAN as a Mentor in 2018. Her love of connecting with new people as well as listening to family and network stories are what brought her to PLAN. Her background is in supporting adults and children with disabilities as well as being a home share provider. Linda loves her family, all animals, being in nature and cooking vegan or vegetarian meals. Linda is excited to connect with PLAN families at the many potluck gatherings as her favourite meals are potlucks; she loves experiencing others cooking. During the last year Linda has been volunteering with refugees and hosts families to live in her home. Linda supports these families to settle into Canada through fostering relationships within their new communities. Recently Linda has been learning to speak Farsi and Spanish to help her deepen the connections she has with the refugee families she volunteers with. As a Mentor at PLAN Linda is looking forward to building and growing many wonderful relationships with PLAN families and supporting others to live a full life.
