The mission and vision of the YW strongly align with my core principles. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to support such an organization.
Ariel Alcornoriginally migrated to the Kitchener-Waterloo region to complete an undergraduate degree in psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University. It was through conversations with an advisor at WLU's Career Centre that connected Ariel to YW's Board of Directors. Though she now commutes from Toronto to remain involved, sitting on the Board has become a very important part of Ariel's identity, and development as a young professional.
After working for several years as a Direct Support Professional, and exploring entrepreneurship, Ariel made the decision to navigate a professional pivot into a sales/marketing role.
Ariel is very passionate about the mission, vision, and values YW Kitchener-Waterloo embodies, and champions.
