Being a survivor herself, Gail has had a deep desire to help others in everything she has been involved in. Her first career was as a Lab Technician, which led her into management and training others in the in this field. As an enthusiastic entrepreneur with strong leaderships skills, she opened and operated a ladies clothing store along with her childhood friend. Their vision was to help women look and feel confident, dressing them for success. A few years later they closed the store during a recession and her experience and knowledge of sales, customer service, marketing, and administration opened the door to the advertising and publishing world, where she eventually launched a New Homes magazine and later, she was instrumental in the launch Metroland’s first New Home section in York Region.
Throughout her endeavors she was able to help others, as well as having the opportunity to hold some events to raise money to help charities. Gail is thrilled to be a part Abuse Hurts as their Program Coordinator, where the main goal is delivering hope to survivors of abuse and giving back to the Community.
Christina came to us from Hamilton Ontario. She has a large passion for animals and ran her own pet business for several years before joining our team. She also has worked in the office at Eagle Worldwide Ministries and assisted in helping at the Kingsway Outreach Center. She struggled herself with childhood abuse and an unsteady home due to her mother having some mental illnesses. This has led her to take an interest in mental health as a whole and show understanding and compassion to everyone around her. Christina loves all people and wants to do whatever she can to help make a difference and show people how important they are!
