Expanding our team to better serve you
TeamFund would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to our newest team member, Colleen Brooks. She will be assisting with our blog as well as some behind the scenes organizing of digital media files.
Colleen is a freelance writer who lives in Calgary, Alberta with her 2 children and 3 dogs. She has 5 years experience maintaining a blog about her own crazy life but was looking for a new adventure. She has also been a guest contributor for other blogs on topics such as family, kid’s sports, fundraising, children with special needs, and recreational activities for the whole family.
Since she was young, Colleen has always loved writing and ‘co-authored’ her first book with her father when she just 4 years old. Despite it being a riveting adventure about a giant named Jenny, it was never published. Go figure. She kept journals as a kid and then went on to write tortured poetry as a teen. One even went on to be selected for publication in an annual educational journal. Over the years she has written a number of short stories. These days her writing is more focused on topics that she is passionate about, namely youth sports and her family.
Colleen is an avid volunteer who gives her time to a number of community groups. The Alberta Children’s Hospital, a local animal rescue, her children’s school and her daughter’s soccer team keep her busy. Over the years she’s been a coach, an assistant coach, and is currently managing the team her daughter plays for. Because of this experience she has helped organize trips to various tournaments and the fundraising to help cover them. She’s participated in fundraising campaigns with us which makes her uniquely qualified to assist our groups in reaching their goals.
She is excited to share what she has learned with us.
Colleen has already been hard at work with us for a few months. She’s been spending time behind the scenes getting familiar with our system and writing the first few articles. We feel that her wealth of experience is a perfect fit for our team and look forward to having her share that with us. Please join us in welcoming her to the TeamFund family.
