“I became involved with the Board of the Addictions Center through a colleague at the Belleville Police Service where I work,” explains Nadine Langlois. “They were looking for a secretary and that was a good fit for me at the time. That was fifteen years ago. I became a Board Member about five years ago and have since performed both roles. My career has been predominantly in Human Resources and Administration – in Toronto for nineteen years and in Belleville for twenty-eight years. That tells you a little bit about my age.”
Nadine says she donates her time, energy and talents to the agency because she has come to admire the folks who sit at the table with her. “They are capable, committed people and are an inspiration to me,” she adds. “I’m a proponent of positive psychological health and have family members who have struggled with addictions. I hope, through my support of the agency, we can continue to help others.”
Looking forward the future, Nadine says, “I am confident that the staff will lead us forward in the area of addictions and mental health services in the community.”
