WINNIPEG, February 10, 2020 – National office is pleased to welcome Marion Wong (officeassistant@cwl.ca) to the staff of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada. Marion joins Executive Director Kim Scammell (executivedirector@cwl.ca), Senior Accounting Clerk Valroy Anderson (accounting@cwl.ca), Executive Secretary Amanda McCormick (communications@cwl.ca), Membership Coordinator Katherine Choi (membership@cwl.ca), Project Coordinator Kerri Sylvester (projects@cwl.ca), and Office Clerk Deborah Woodbeck (clerk@cwl.ca). Marion takes on the role of office assistant.

Marion Wong was born in Morden, Manitoba and moved to Winnipeg with her family when she was three years old. After graduating from high school, she attended the University of Manitoba and obtained a master of arts degree in English. Marion worked retail at Eaton’s department store while attending university and gained invaluable experience in excellent customer service.

Marion is grateful for the opportunity to join the League staff and looks forward to working as a member of such a talented team. Previously employed at The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce for more than nine years, her tenure there began in the role of receptionist/administrative assistant and culminated in the position of operations manager. Marion’s work experience encompasses both the non-profit world as well as the for-profit world as she was also previously employed at 6P Marketing as office manager. She has a strong background in administrative duties and customer service.

Marion feels privileged to have been able to be a stay at home mom for 16 years for her two sons, Jas and Kian, of whom, she is very proud. She loves most animals, and her much-loved cat, Kitkat, completes her family. She is, however, terrified of mice, spiders and grasshoppers.

In her spare time, Marion is an avid reader. She likes to watch movies and to watch her favourite shows on television. Occasionally, she gets caught up playing Cookie Jam on her iPad.

Marion is excited to learn more about the League and her co-workers and to interact with members. She will strive to do her best to answer questions and resolve concerns and thanks you for your patience and understanding when reaching out to her as she acclimates to this new experience.
