Angie Shilliday

DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

SECRETARY TO THE BOARD

Angie won the title of Mrs. Canada in 2014 and utilized her reign to promote what she is passionate about and skilled at…building with Habitat for Humanity. Beyond that, recognizing a gap in the social system, Angie was on a mission to create awareness surrounding addiction and mental illness afflicting women with children. Her heartfelt and personal goal was recently accomplished through a very hands on volunteer venture at 1835 Recovery Acres-Men’s Treatment Center. Co-creating, hosting and downright getting “er done” on the TV series “Crowns of Construction”, Angie showcased her skills as a Jack (or Jill) of-of all trades and her passion for her community by renovating a run-down four-plex into a much needed Women’s Addiction Treatment Facility C.A.R.E.
