Outside of Claire’s new role at ONPARA, she is a Broadcaster with AMI on a show called “The Neutral Zone” where they cover news and events in the para sport world as well as mainstream sports. She enjoys using her voice to elevate the stories and voices of other disabled individuals and is thrilled to be able to do the same here at ONPARA!

She has a background in recreational therapy and is passionate about making sport accessible and inclusive for all. Tammy brings her knowledge of event and program coordination, volunteer recruitment, and marketing to the team and will be leading the coordination of Ontario Para Network’s High Performance Wheelchair Basketball Programs.

She brings experience interning for Ontario Basketball as their Officiating intern and Canada Basketball as a Coach Education intern.  She has a background as a Membership & Administrative Coordinator and ongoing experience at a high-performance organization and is very familiar with the Canadian sport system. She is excited for this new journey and to be a part of the ONPARA team!
