Mimi holds a Ph.D. in English Literature specializing in the work of modern writers of religious fiction. Since 1986, however, her work in continuing education has enabled her to venture well beyond the bounds of her original academic discipline.

Personal Details and Community Involvement
Mimi serves on the Board of the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Toronto and is a past chair of the Board of Directors of the Centre for Ethics and Corporate Policy (EthicsCentre). A keen, through undistinguished golfer, she enjoys travelling to a variety of golf destinations with her husband Frank, an Ontario Superior Court Judge. Most of all these days, however, she delights in her role of “nana” to five young grandchildren.
