I FEEL GOOD SUMMITITS ALL ABOUT FEELING GOOD
Roberta is a single mother to her wonderful 12 year old son Jesse. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from the University of Toronto in 1983 and then went back to school again to embark on a challenging and rewarding 32 year career as an advanced care Paramedic in Toronto. She has been happily retired for 2 years now. On top of her demanding career, Roberta always found time to ‘give back’ and to help others who are less fortunate. She has received numerous awards for her volunteer and community work. Some highlights include being awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal from the Paramedic Association of Canada in 2012 for distinguished contributions to her community and her profession and the Ontario Paramedic Association Exemplary Service Award in 2016. Roberta is a past Vice President of the Ontario Paramedic Association and was the PR and Media Director for the Toronto Paramedic Association for over 15 years. Her life passions include – besides raising her son – a love of nature, animals, gardening, physical fitness and mindfulness. Roberta believes for true happiness, it is essential to live a physically active and mentally engaging lifestyle, filled with meaning and purpose, and she wants to help and inspire other people to do the same. Roberta believes that our personal growth and development should never stop, and that our lives should be an exciting journey. That we should always look forward, to the next new opportunity or adventure. A new chapter in our life can always provide the potential to help us to become our best and most authentic self.
