Beth Bailey
Beth Bailey Chair
In 2006, after an 8 month battle with brain cancer, Beth’s husband Scott died. She became a widow at the age of 36 and the only parent to two children, a son 3 years and a daughter 13 months old. Since Scott’s death, her journey has been filled with self-discovery and learning. Beth has always believed that “information is power” and continues to educate herself about grief and bereavement …. for both herself and her children. It is Beth’s hope that, as a family, they can live fulfilling lives while remembering Scott and keeping him close in their hearts. Beth is a “hockey and cheerleading mom” and continues to learn the intricacies of each sport. She is very proud of her children, and cherishes the joy they bring to life, each and every day.

Chelsea Arnott
Chelsea ArnottVice Chair
Chelsea Arnott is the Leadership Programs Coordinator for The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation. She graduated with honours from Conestoga College in 2013 and has been with The Foundation since.

Chelsea came to Hummingbird Centre for Hope after meeting Marny and learning more about what HCH is all about. It made sense for her to join the board because she has a passion for helping people, even if it is not an experience she has personally been through.

When Chelsea is not working or volunteering she spends her time with her six year old son Keegan. You can find them participating in activities including swimming, boxing and soccer or relaxing with a game of cards and watching a movie.

Dori MuellerDirector
Formerly from Windsor and Oakville, Ontario, Dori has resided in Kitchener-Waterloo for thirteen years. Her background includes Marketing and Event Coordination for companies such as OpenText and Equitable Life of Canada. She is currently a stay at home mom and volunteers as a member of Parent Council for Edna Staebler Public School, and photographer for the Canadian Cancer Society KW Unit.

Hummingbird Centre for Hope was introduced to Dori by a former Board member, Nicole Schell, and having experienced loss herself, felt this was a great opportunity to support others on a board capacity, especially families with young children, in dealing with loss and grief.

When she isn’t volunteering, her photography ambitions continue as a hobby as well as spending time with her family and playing mom role to her daughter.

You may see Dori or her family actively participating in the various classes or in the gym at the Stork YMCA.

Beth Armstrong
Beth ArmstrongDirector
Beth is the Training and Development Specialist in the life claims department at Manulife Financial. She received her undergraduate degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and obtained a post-graduate degree in education from the University of Toronto. She also holds designations through the International Claims Association.

With such heavy involvement in helping families deal with the financial burdens of death, it was a natural move for Beth to become more involved in an organization like The Hummingbird Centre for Hope that specialize in dealing with the other aspects of death and grief.
Beth’s work background includes implementing organizational evolution and redesign, project management, training and development, and supervisory roles.

Working with the Hummingbird Centre for Hope is fulfilling and meaningful to Beth and she looks forward to the exciting things to come for the organization.
