Who We Are

Sue Crawford

CEO and Co-Founder

Sue is a registered nurse specialized in working with vulnerable young people. She works at the Alberta Children's Hospital with the Child & Adolescent Emergency Mental Health team, teaches Pediatric Nursing and Health Promotion at Bow Valley College, and is on the Board of Directors at Calgary Quest School. A Master of Nursing student at the University of Calgary, Sue is studying the impact of disability in family units. She has nearly a decade of experience in the disabilities community, most notably with Between Friends as the Camp Director of Camp Fun'zAmust at Easter Seals Camp Horizon over the past five summers. She is also a support worker for three young adults with disabilities.

Michael Purdy

COO and Co-Founder

Michael has always wanted to provide health care solutions for individuals, but took a different route than Sue, in the form of a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering. His passion for connecting people and creating community drives his desire to find a social solution to the problems of isolation that many families affected by disabilities experience.
