31 December 2020 was my last day as Executive Director of the Alzheimer Society of Montreal. Even though this was the most challenging year ever in my career, I can say without a doubt that 2020 was the best ever.
It was the best ever, because of the deep sense of purpose that anchored my commitment to the Society’s mission of alleviating the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on persons living with the disease, their caregivers and the health care system.
None of this was possible without the support and collaboration of an outstanding team of motivated, resilient, and innovative colleagues who were unwavering in the delivery of adapted services throughout the pandemic.
I am in a place of gratitude, thankful for the opportunity to have led the amazing team at the Society. I am grateful to the members of my LinkedIn network for the resources you have shared, which have supported my professional development.
I look forward to a pause in winter, and the start of another chapter in my professional journey in spring 2021.
