Mercedes is a long-time volunteer who first encountered SCOA in 2006 when invited to join the Publication Committee (that published the SCOA Newsletter, “Coming of Age”). Since then she has participated on numerous SCOA committees. She treasures the new friends, mostly volunteers like herself, made while working on important projects dedicated to improving the well-being of older adults (like her!). She comments, “SCOA is like a vortex; once in, it draws you in further and deeper! And you become a tireless volunteer advocating for older adults through SCOA”. She is grateful for the challenges and opportunities and for the satisfaction of giving back to the community. She presently serves as President of SCOA and Chair of the Board of Directors.
Mercedes is Mom to four, “Baba” to eight and “Big Baba” to two wonderful, little “greats”. She is an RN (Retired) and a former Nurse Educator who enjoys meeting up with former Grads to learn all about their careers.
Her vision for SCOA as it enters its 31st year, is a comprehensive, “go-to”, premier organization for older adults in Saskatoon and area, growing while keeping the Vision: “Positive Aging for all in an Age-friendly Community”. To accomplish this, SCOA needs a reliable source of funding; it has the organization and the people!
