Chippewas of Nawash Welcomes New Matrimonial Real Property Coordinator

Chippewas of Nawash welcomes  Nuala (pronounced as “new-la”) Robinson as the new Matrimonial Real Property (MRP) Coordinator.  Ms. Robinson is a longtime Grey-Bruce resident who brings a wealth of cross-discipline experience as an executive assistant to the role, in the fields of mental health and addictions, law, accounting and commercial development. She lists as just some of her passions raising her son, reading (particularly sci-fi and fantasy),  crochet, motorcycles, and music.  Despite Ms. Robinson’s many pastimes, she still finds time to volunteer with the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society, and to serve on the Boards of the Victorian Order of Nurses in Grey-Bruce and the Sauble Family Health Team. Her positive outlook and cheerful work ethic is truly inspirational. Ms. Robinson will be an asset to our community and we are excited to have her as part of our team.
