Director at Large, Tracy Mousseau, ON

Tracy has attended Ski For Light Canada since 2015 and thoroughly enjoys it. She is a sit skier and is guided by her husband, Alan Stummer. She has served on the board for three years and has learned a lot about this organization and what it has to offer to blind/visually impaired people and sighted guides. The need for both groups to keep it going. She and Alan own a 30 foot sailboat and spend spring, summer and fall on it: sailing, sleeping, cooking, and, of course, swimming off the boat. Last year she missed not having friends sailing with them.
