Getting To Know Your Play Ambassadors

We have an amazing team of professional play people! They are dedicated to being builders and story tellers, movers and shakers, growers of imagination and fun. They promise to make all of your play experiences ones that you'll never forget! 



Hi! I am a student athlete at the U of C where I run track and field and am currently studying sociology. I am so excited to be a part of the PHCC team as I am very passionate about being involved in the same community that I grew up in. The new Play Ambassador program is an amazing opportunity to engage with my community, while encouraging kids and families to get out and be active! Having the opportunities to spread positivity and play throughout my community is so special to me and I'm honoured to be a part of the Play Ambassador initiative.



Hi! I'm Serena, a proud Francophone, an avid outdoors woman and proud queer activist. I am currently a student at the U of C studying Gender and Sexuality Studies and am driven by my passion for play, and raising healthier communities in Calgary and beyond.  I am a change maker, innovator and experimenter. Through many adventures and opportunities, I have been able to effect social change internationally and locally. I'm looking forward to playing my favourite game, Giants, Wizards and Elves with you! 



Hi! My name is Makena and I am part of the Play Ambassador team! I am currently in my third year of the Bachelor of Education degree at Mount Royal University. I love hiking, doing gymnastics, and being outside in the warm weather. I think that one of my favourite childhood games would have to be cat and mouse tag or good old fashioned freeze tag. I can't wait to play with you! 



Hi everyone, my name is Mena! I love to spend time outside whenever I can during the summer. Some of my favourite things include going swimming, hiking and walking my dog. I played a lot of fun games when I was younger, but my favourite game was camouflage! 

When we talk about the great workers of the world, we really mean the great players of the world.
