Team Manager - Shona Thirsk
I am excited to have been named Team Manager for WAO Team Canada. This is a great management group and an amazing group of dogs and handlers ready to take on the World!
I have been involved in dog sports for almost 19 years starting agility with my terrier who was the first Wire Fox Terrier to earn an ATChC. I currently share my life with my 2 border collies and my agility-supportive husband. I enjoy attending seminars from handlers all over the world and love teaching agility on a part-time basis. UKI is a favorite venue of mine; attending local, Regional and National events each year. I also host local and Regional UKI events in the Ottawa region and support others who host trials in Ontario and Quebec.
I have been involved in many World Team Management positions; attending the IFCS twice and being part of the CKC management group. Last year I was a Team Assistant for WAO Team Canada in the Netherlands as well as the Sponsorship Coordinator for the Team. I feel my background of 30 years in the Energy Industry retiring as a Project Manager also helps me to bring the best to the Team.
Go Canada Go!
