Keira does a lot to help out her local community. She cares deeply about those around her. In 2017, she participated in the Barrie Dancing with Easter Seals Stars. Barrie is lucky to have someone like Keira. Even if she isn't crowned the Police Services Hero, she is still a hero to me.

I'd absolutely love to share a story about Amy Finn. I grew up in a drug infested impoverished neighborhood. I was fortunate enough compared to some of my peers that my parents didn't have a substance abuse problem. My home was drug and alcohol free.
