Autistics have some of the lowest physical activity levels and Wanda is determined to be a positive role model in an effort to reverse this trend. She is an active participant in Waterloo Memorial Recreation Centre’s fitness programs, practices yoga at Minds Eye Studio Art Gallery and Yoga Studio, and she and her husband are community owners in the KW Titans Basketball Team.

Politics

Wanda believes in the right for autistics to be engaged citizens involved in societal decision-making. She has canvassed in all federal, provincial and municipal election campaigns since 2019 on behalf of women candidates.

Wanda is also a donor to the Equal Voice Foundation, dedicated to improving gender representation in Canadian politics. The Foundation’s multi-partisanship highlights the advocacy and education of women from all parties working toward reaching gender parity.

She is delighted that politics is an interest she shares with her older son, Adrien. Wanda and Adrien were scrutineers for different parties in the 2022 Ontario provincial election and travelled to Parliament Hill in March 2023 to attend Question Period and visit with Members of Parliament.
