ELENA SIMONETTA having grown up in the St. Clair West community, Elena Simonetta continues to reside and operate her business Salon 1065 within the community. Elena became a Board member for Humewood House 3 years ago knowing her liaison to the community would help bring awareness to Humewood House and that it would be welcomed and supported. The feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment having worked with Humewood House leads Elena to want to continue as a Board member for the newly amalgamated Massey Centre Board.
Elena aims to work towards a successful future for the new organization and looks forward to working with the team.
