About Us


Mission Statement

To be an excellent resource and logistics partner to OCE Ministry Units in support of the Salvation Army's mission to share love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs and be a transforming influence in the communities of our world.

We are here to SERVE YOU our ministry unit partners! We see you as our frontline operatives and whatever we can do to help you fulfil the above mission we are here to try our best.

Logistics has many definitions. Here are a couple of favourites:

  • Logistics is the process of planning and executing the efficient transportation and storage of goods from the point of origin to the point of consumption.

  • Logistics the function of getting the right thing to the right place at the right time, efficiently and securely.

We recognize the centrality of what we do to help the effective execution of your ministry activities. We understand that if we don’t do our job well there are downstream repercussions. We don’t take our role in the Salvation Army Supply Chain lightly. We want to be an asset not a liability. We want to be an enabler and a blessing to you and your work sharing the love of Jesus with those in our communities who come to us for help. What a privilege to be part of God’s work every day!

Here are a few inspirational quotes that encapsulate how central we see what we do to the successful fulfilment of our collective mission at Salvation Army:

  • "Tactics may win battles but logistics wins wars"

  • "Amateurs talk tactics. Professionals talk strategy. Realists talk logistics"

Our hope and confidence is in God to be able to do this well for His glory and the extension of His Kingdom through our work.

Our Team

I love most sports but am active in Cycling, Swimming and Golf. I am bi-lingual, speaking both Scottish and English fluently! I have lived in Canada for almost 24 years now, having only come for 2 years originally. The country I most want to visit is New Zealand. I attend Richmond Hill Community Church of the Salvation Army.

Love to read and to write. I like exercise, especially outside when the weather is good, swimming, walking, mountain biking. Enjoy watching movies and relaxing with my husband on weekends. I love my job, helping to feed Ontario. Each day I like to recap what I have managed to secure that day. I attend Church at New Life Christian Church in Woodbridge. I also run workshops for women that have lived through abuse and mistreatment. I visit Women’s prisons regularly, to help with their emotional and spiritual needs.

As cliche as this may sound, I love travel, music, and the thrill of discovering something new. My life has been a rich mosaic of diverse experiences, and that’s moulded in me an insatiable curiosity. When I’m not working, I’m more than likely hanging out with my loving French Bulldog, Diesel.
