Shelly Howe

Shelly is a longtime resident of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan with her family of four almost-grown children, her husband and her dog. She works for the City of Moose Jaw as the Recreation Program Supervisor, programming the pools and arenas. Her passion for drowning prevention has been fostered by a lifetime of involvement in aquatics through her own years of lifeguarding, teaching swimming lessons, and now training others in these areas. Through her volunteer work with the Canadian Red Cross Water Safety Program and as part of the Lifesaving Society Critical Incident Stress Team, Shelly works to spread the message of drowning prevention to all that she can. For Shelly, attending the World Conference on Drowning Prevention in 2017 was an amazing experience, and she looks forward to sharing her newly-gained ideas and knowledge.
