Hello Fellow Kin:

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 since 1984 and have two grown children Steven and Nicholas. I live in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia and work as a non auditing 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 executive speaks with one voice. Outside of Kin I was the treasurer or Sackville Community Development Association and a committee member of Sackville Patriot Days.
The highlights of my Kin career by far, has been my term as District 7 Governor in 2010-2011 and my Life Membership May 24th 2019
