CHARLENE MAY

  • Community involvement and the spirit of volunteering started as a child growing up in Northeast Calgary attending Girl Guides and the Boys & Girls Club. 


  • Lakeland College provided hands on knowledge of our ecosystem, leading to my career in oilfield reclamation and hazardous waste disposal.  

  • After my second child was born, I felt there was a need to provide quality and flexible home childcare in my community.  I used my love of research to provide well-rounded childcare for a variety of ages.   


  • As my children grew my commitments expanded beyond my household.  Evenings and weekends have been enjoyed while serving locally in programs, associations, and councils that help my community and school. 

  • My primary focus is adding value to any organization. I am thoughtful, dependable, collaborative, innovative, compassionate, trustworthy, and most of all helpful.
