VICE-PRESIDENT – SHERYL LOUCKS
Creative and driven, Sheryl has won national and provincial journalism awards in her 20-year quest to share the stories that make us Canucks. She has successfully penned national and provincial grant applications. Her passion for the environment, history and writing meshed in a four-year term as co-founder and manager of a museum and literary centre housed in a straw bale “green” structure. Sheryl is dedicated to operating Canuck Play by environmentally aware principles. An education junkie, Sheryl’s Carleton BA in History and Journalism, Humber post-grad in Creative Writing and Ryerson diploma in Publishing honed her ferret-like research skills and hawkish editing. She’s also managed teams of over 100 people, who still like her, and has over 12 years of experience in administrative roles.
