Fay and her husband Hans moved to the Ottawa Valley more than 30 years ago and live just outside White Lake in a log home that they rebuilt themselves from an old and derelict log house relocated from the Stittsville area.
Fay worked as a human resource professional for nearly 30 years – mainly in high-tech in Ottawa, but she also worked in non-profit and for the last five years before retirement at the Donnelly Automotive Group in Ottawa.
Since retiring Fay has been very active in volunteer work in the Valley. She is vice-president of the Board of Directors for VHR and takes care of the human resources for the radio station on a volunteer basis. She is also an active Board member for the Arnprior Regional Health Foundation.
Fay and Hans have three daughters and eight grandchildren, and after more than three decades in the area, are proud to call themselves Valley folk!
