Board of Directors
Founder, President (M.Ed, C.D.)
Tim participated in a tour of duty in the Kandahar area of Afghanistan as a convoy escort troop, crew commander, acting station second-in-command, an RWS gunner, and a RG-31 driver. After he returned to Canada he eventually discovered the VTP, and was blown away by the change it made in his life.
It spurred him to complete a Masters of Counselling at UBC, during which time he spent thousands of volunteer hours creating the VTN to bring our program to every Canadian Veteran who needs it.
