Being a member of the Abbey Retreat Centre community is important to Maryssa for many reasons. “As someone who has lived through both parents having experienced cancer, I relate on a deep level. I am grateful that support is also extended to the key support people whose lives have also been affected by cancer. The team at Abbey Retreat Centre has created a safe space in a serene setting which allows people to heal and work through hardships.”
Maryssa brings a passion for Abbey Retreat Centre’s philanthropic vision and mission and is motivated by seeing and hearing the positive impact that Abbey Retreat Centre makes in people’s lives. She brings experience in bookkeeping, facility and business management, community involvement, and extensive engagement in the local music and dance community.
