My name is Brenda Dooley and I have been a very active member of the Kinette Club of Sackville since I joined July 1st 1999. I have been married to Kinsmen Wade for 31 years and have two children Steven (23) and Nicholas (19). I live in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia and work as an accountant for a small but busy veterinary hospital. My field of work and education is in finance and administration. I have very strong work ethics, am detail oriented and believe that a strong board speaks with one voice. The highlight of my Kin career by far, has been my term as District 7 Governor. After my term on the National Board my club nominated and I was chosen to be the Sackville Volunteer of the year in 2015. A humbling experience.
