Val McKinnon, Homestay Administrator

With a wealth of knowledge from working with international students in a variety of roles, as well as a passion for helping young people achieve their goals, I am very excited to be joining MLI.

I have spent most of my adult life working in leadership positions helping guide a diverse group of young men and women to develop life skills, including working with new-to-Canada students to acclimate to a new culture as well as succeed academically. I am passionate about volunteering with the Dreams Take Flight program, which helps chronically ill and disabled kids on the trip-of-a-lifetime to Disneyland. In my spare time, I enjoy writing for 'Vancouver Style Guys', watching Canucks hockey and Seahawks football, and living the West Coast lifestyle by exploring the diverse and exciting community I call home.
