Colleen started coaching with Special Olympics Manitoba in 2002 and has been a staff member with SOM for two years. She was Mission Staff with Rhythmic Gymnastics at the 2015 World Games in Los Angeles. She says walking in the Opening Ceremonies wearing a Team Canada uniform with the rest of the team is a feeling she will never forget and treasure always. Colleen lives in Garson and as Manager of Coach and Sport Development is honoured to work with Special Olympics athletes and coaches from all of Manitoba’s 18 sports. Her goals for the 2019 Games are to help Team Canada athletes and coaches be the best they can be, ensure they celebrate their accomplishment and enjoy the moment. In addition to cheering on Team Canada, Colleen enjoys cheering on the Winnipeg Jets.
