2018 BNHA EXECUTIVE


Geneviève Schirm-Joyce ~ President and Pool Manager

                          I have a BMus in music performance (cello) as well as a BA in French from Wilfrid                           Laurier University. I then went on to do my Masters in Suzuki Pedagogy at the                                   University of Denver.

                           I am the founder of Suzuki Talent Education of Waterloo (STEW) along with 2 other                       colleagues.  We provide music lessons using the Suzuki method. I teach children as                           young as 2 years old all the way up to beginner adults.  I have a passion for teaching                         and bringing the best out of people in a nurturing and caring environment.                                             I was also a lifeguard for 10 years, and worked at various pools around the region.  I                     I have taught swimming lessons to all ages, am a trained Aquafit instructor and have been both a head lifeguard and manager. I worked as manager at Beechwood North for 2 years before volunteering to be on the executive as Vice-President (and now as President) and worked directly with the lifeguards and tennis instructors.
     As a child we moved to Beechwood North 25 years ago and I grew up in this fantastic community. I knew that I wanted my children to experience the same type of neighbourhood connections and so I decided to move back.
