🟣 Life experience led me into this field. After completing the HSW diploma program, I found ASK while searching for employment.  

WHAT MAKES YOU MOST PROUD ABOUT YOUR ROLE WITHIN ASK?
🟡 What I enjoy most about working with ASK is being able to develop positive relationships with our residents and having the freedom to explore new program ideas.


WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
🟢 Most of my spare time is spent with my two children. I also enjoy watching combat sports.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU JUST CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
🔵 I could not live without my family....and coffee.

CAN YOU TELL US A FUN FACT OR SOMETHING FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU?

🟠 I am a phenomenal soccer player, some would say the best ever. 

Keith is a huge asset to our Fairhaven supportive housing program, as well as to other Penticton programs. Keith has recently spearheaded the Penticton Ambassador Program which provides pre-employment opportunities for peer support through community cleanup. Thank you for all your hard work, Keith. We’ll meet you on the pitch to see those skills in action!
