Ambassadors are passionate supporters from the community who are empowered to share information about Sustainable Waterloo in their business and social networks. Ambassadors assist us in connecting with the community, building relationships and helping explore opportunities to connect with and support Sustainable Waterloo Region, including membership, volunteerism, employment, event attendance, sponsorship and networking.
Sarah is a life-long resident of the Waterloo Region and huge supporter of community-wide sustainability. She has worked with the local electric utilities in the Region for the past six years to launch, promote and educate customers on opportunities to reduce electricity consumption.
Her current role as the Supervisor of Energy Efficiency with Cambridge and North Dumfries Hydro involves advancing their saveONenergy initiatives and working directly with customers on long-term energy management. Her passion and ‘energy’ for conservation are what motivate her to success. Sarah was recently awarded the One to Watch award by the Association of Energy Services Professionals at their annual conference in Florida.
Carol has split her marketing career between academic not-for-profit based entities and the high tech industry in Waterloo Region. The Research + Technology Park at the University of Waterloo provides the opportunity to bridge both these diverse environments to create a community of innovation and collaboration for industry and academic research to live, grow and prosper in Waterloo Region.
In addition to managing all elements that relate to the park, Carol is dedicated to giving back to her industry and community by participating on many committees and boards: President, Association of University Research Parks (AURP) Canada, Economic Development Committee member & Ambassador for Canada’s Technology Triangle (CTT), Ernest C Manning Awards Committee for Waterloo Wellington, Marketing Committee Chair for three local Children & Women’s Charities, Committee Council Member WWLHIN, and member of the UW Athletics Adhoc Committee.
Matt was born in raised in Waterloo and is excited about moving back to Waterloo after working in the service industry in Toronto for the past 3 years. He attended Wilfrid Laurier University where he first met Mike Morrice and Sustainable Waterloo Region co-founder Chris Depaul. Since that time he has followed Mike’s continued success with the organization and was excited at attending several of SWR events earlier on in 2012. After attending the Evening of Recognition he was approached at becoming an Ambassador and he is extremely grateful for the opportunity.
Matt works in sales for Westmount Moving and is a member of several different groups and organization in the area which he hopes to raise the awareness of the great things that SWR does on a daily basis.
