Her current role as the Geriatric Emergency Management (GEM) Nurse allows her to work closely with clients, caregivers, the interdisciplinary team and community organizations.

Past President


Community Care's Management Team

One of the most important responsibilities of our Board is to hire an Executive Director to run the day-to-day management activities of Community Care.  Our Executive Director then recruits their management team to assist them with the day-to-day department operations.  

Community Care's Management Team:

  • Danielle Belair - Executive Director
  • Nancy Frankish - Director,  Finance & Administration
  • Catherine Pink - Director, Support Services
  • Aja Bax - Manager, Collaborative Care
  • Alicia Vandine -  Donor Relations and Communications Lead
  • Darci Maude - Volunteer Development Coordinator  

 With this paid staff in place, rather than steer the boat by managing day-to-day operations, our board members focus on foresight, oversight, and insight.
