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 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.

He was drawn to HCH by their dedicated and compassionate team and is eager to help in all future undertakings.
When he isn’t glued to the computer screen, he enjoys eating a variety of foods (both fast and other), reading, watching football, and studying for exams.
He is currently taking courses on java and plans to master this in the future.
