Cheryl Carters-Rolfe is a community developer working with Building Resilient Neighbourhoods (a key Hey Neighbour Collective partner) and its Connect & Prepare program.
She is currently working in Victoria, BC with residents in several multi-unit residential buildings and streets helping them connect with each other and collectively prepare for small everyday emergencies as well as big ones (like a pandemic!)
Cheryl holds a Master of Community and Regional Planning degree from the University of British Columbia. She has over 20 years of experience, both personally and professionally, working on community development and sustainable transportation planning and education. She is fueled by contributing to building more connected, livable neighbourhoods and urban environments.
Cheryl nourishes her soul by getting into nature hiking, kayaking and biking, as well as practicing yoga and reading good books. She lives with her husband, three kids and adorable dog on one of Victoria’s most friendly and community-oriented streets.
