After 20 years of community building and teaching in communities throughout the NWT and Nunavut, Hay returned to Gravenhurst and built a home for herself on the family farm. She has a Bachelor of Education and wrote a weekly column providing support to seniors and caregivers called “Caring through Ages and Stages.”
