Away from the Desk
When not in the office, Malissa enjoys spending time with her active family – her husband, two daughters and two dogs. When they aren’t at Church, a school program, a youth sport’s event, a dance recital, karate test, or Scouting day… They like to experience the various activities offered around the city, travel and just take a ‘day off’ from time-to-time.
