Carrie Sinkowski is a lifelong resident of Port Dover and absolutely adores her north shore of Lake Erie town. She grew up in her grandfather’s hardware store, Stoney’s. Hearing the stories exchanged all day, every day, at the front of the store, lead her to the understanding that communities are built through sharing and connecting creating a love for community work which has been the focus on her career. Carrie has an undergrad in Women studies, and  an MA in Labour Studies, both from McMaster, and is currently at Osgoode Hall Law School working on her LLM. Since 2016 she has been the community developer for the Community  Legal Clinic - Brant, Haldimand Norfolk, and is a sessional instructor in the Labour  Studies department at McMaster.  A major of focus of her work is access to justice which has provided her opportunity to deliver programming in the community as well as present at conferences and partner with universities on conducting local research.  She spends the rest of her time travelling or being on the water with her partner, walking her beagle Frankie who loves to dress in the latest canine fashion, and devouring as many books as humanly possible.
