Personal Details and Community Involvement
Billie has eclectic taste in relaxation outside of the workplace. She is a scratch cook converting favourite family recipes into delicious paleo and gluten free offerings for her loved ones on restricted diets. For friends without restrictions she makes wine, beer and cider to enjoy, hopefully by a fire pit. She has three Husky Grandpuppies who keep her very busy asking for as many treats as they can get, and builds great muscles reigning them in on walks.

As often as possible she volunteers building and renovating Kingdom Halls and has collected a wealth of hand tools that often come into the workplace for little fixes and installations. When it comes to tools, many have said “If Billie doesn’t have it, you don’t need it”.
