Director of Student Services: Nicole Brandon
Director of Membership Services: Abbey Flower
Director of Heritage Advocacy: Margie Kenedy
Her interests span from early hunter-gatherer mobility to present-day archaeological management plans, but she is also interested in everything in between. She is passionate about sharing the knowledge, data, and artifacts collected in Ontario with the general public.
She lives with her husband on a small farm with a slowly diminishing menagerie of horses, a dog, and a cat.
She does not have any spare time, but if she did, she would enjoy travelling to warmer climates, reading about warmer climates, and simply heat in general (written during a cold snap).
She is looking forward to serving the archaeological community on the OAS board.
