Trudy is very passionate about:
Leadership – being a strong and successful leader. Trudy is consistently committed to being a positive and strong leader. She has obtained the respect of many of her colleagues by showing resiliency through many challenges.
Mentorship – help women create successful careers in construction. Trudy has gained an enormous amount of experience in construction through hard work; at the same time, she also recognizes the need for work/life balance. Providing support to women to foster this healthy balance is important to her.
Community – giving back. Trudy has always taken a special interest in Habitat for Humanity. She has spent countless hours volunteering at her local Restore, acting as family liaison and recently participated in the Habitat for Humanity GTA Women’s Build.

Something Trudy feels is an amazing benefit to young girls.
Trudy is a strong, dedicated and positive woman, she believes that her experiences in her professional life and within the construction industry make her a valuable addition to the CAWIC Board of Directors and also makes her a strong role model for her son and daughter at home.
