Marion joined Scarborough Health Network Foundation team as a Development Officer, Direct Mail and Database Integrity way back in June 2010. Prior to this, she had similar positions with The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, York Central Hospital Foundation, and Mount Sinai Auxiliary.

Marion continually learns every day during her tenure at SHN Foundation, for which she is very grateful. Marion is now Manager, Annual Development, focusing on Direct Mail, Online Giving, Monthly Donors, Tributes, and other annual programs.

Marion has a varied and extensive background in Raiser’s Edge that has involved many hours of data entry, coding, writing policies and procedures for the database, and training many staff on RE policies and procedures. At Children’s Wish, she was crowned “Queen of RE” (and still has her crown from that ceremony)!

Before her not-for-profit experience, Marion spent over 20 years in various administrative and management positions in the corporate sector.

Both Marion and her husband have a love of reading and taught their two children to read and enjoy books at a very young age. All her family can be found in a library or book store somewhere pretty much any day of the week. For Marion, the best part of any day is the time spent with a good book, a cup of tea, and a comfortable chair in which to curl up.
