Board of Directors
Denyse is very honored to be selected to the FTP Board of Directors and to uphold the vision, mission and values of this very important and much needed organization.
As a former employee of Community Living Dufferin, where she worked for 22 years, Denyse enjoyed supporting people directly and then managing staff teams. She brought to these roles her belief and understanding of dignity and respect for all. These are the same values and reason she was drawn to become involved with FTP.
Denyse has been a resident of Orangeville for 25 years and feels very fortunate to have the opportunities a community such as ours provides. From raising her two children, being a local volunteer and working towards new goals, Denyse knows and appreciates the good fortune many in our community enjoy. She now looks forward to her role with FTP and to be able to give back to her community.
Sheralyn Roman has lived, worked and volunteered in the Caledon/Dufferin community for over 20 years and considers it a great honour to join the Board of FTP. She has been a regular contributor to FTP’s Celebrating Women Magazine and can’t wait to share the FTP story with an even broader community. She is the proud owner of small, local communications company called Writing Right For You. Sheralyn has a B.A. and a Bachelor of Education, is a former Teacher and the published author of a children’s book. She writes regularly for the Caledon Citizen and a variety of freelance publications. Sheralyn is married, has two awesome kids, volunteers with a local soccer club and sits on the Board of several other Caledon nonprofit agencies and on the Caledon Library Board.
Mary is proud to serve as a new Director( 2019) of Family Transition Place. She recalls its inception and early foundation in Orangeville when serving as a Councillor in the Town of Orangeville. She also served as Mayor during her 23 years on Council.
She and her husband Alex have lived in Orangeville for 44 years bringing up 3 children here. She taught at St. Peter Elementary School for 26 years of her 37 year career in education.
Mary is looking forward to working with the other Directors and the amazing staff of FTP.
