Zonita Haggis | Social Director
Zonita Haggis. Born and raised in Labrador. Was tired of waiting for her Hogwarts letter so she attended university in Newfoundland and obtained an engineering degree. Moved across the country to Calgary where she met and married her forever love, Barry, who is a CKE OG. Spends all of her free time hanging with her husband, rescue dog, and baby boy. Can be found embracing the long winters by warming up with spicy foods but her guilty pleasure is grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup. Favourite pastime is organizing anything and everything! Loves CKE because it reminds her of home and is her “small town” in a big city.

I have powerful feelings about helping people and volunteering will always be part of my life. We all need to help each other, for this life to have meaning and beauty.
