Meet the Board of Directors

The Grace House Board of Directors

The Drumheller Society for Recovery is fortunate to rely on the sound judgment, wisdom of this diverse group of Board of Directors. Their passion for excellence and their belief in the value of the work will serve them well. Their professional experience is augmented by the fact that a significant number of the Board are in recovery themselves and are proud to serve as examples that change is possible.

Jeremy MacKenzie - Vice President (Acting President)

I've been a Drumheller resident since 2016 and a local small business owner since 2017. I see a great organization that I believe I can contribute to in a positive way. Over 13 years sober myself, I believe I can provide a common sense, logical and thoughtful means of input with clear communication. My biggest interest is in seeing a successful, community-based program of sobriety.

Cindy Schuiling - Treasurer

I feel my largest asset to this Board is my no-nonsense attitude and my network of people within the Drumheller Community who I am happy to draw from to assist the Grace House. My roles as an Office Manager for a mid size Oil and Gas Company and additionally my position as Career Counsellor assisting clients from all walks of life including those with Addictions will help in giving the Grace House sound advise and directions to move forward.

Tracy Symowoniuk - Secretary

I grew up in the valley, am very well known, this has always been a strength as well as my organizational skills including my problem-solving capabilities. I am a former business owner, brick and mortar as well as online businesses. My past work experience has brought me in contact with the men of the Grace House for resume creation and job search. I have the time and positive mindset to help the Grace House move forward…Transferrable Skills are key!!

Travis Mattson - Director

I'm an Alumni of the Grace House with 2 plus years Sobriety. Before coming to Grace House and the Drumheller area, I lived in Lethbridge where I worked at Streets Alive, a Christian Street Mission. While there I was a Supervisor and an Outreach Worker. I’m very active in the Grace House, I'm there 2-3 times a week giving back and showing newcomers that we do recover and it is within their reach. I enjoy sharing the message within the community of the Grace House.

Donna Powell - Director

My husband and I have recently moved to the valley and plan on living out our retirement years here. I am presently retired from a career working in mental health and addictions. I have  personal as well as professional  experience in 12 step recovery and welcome this opportunity to make a  contribution to my community.
