Meet the Board

President of the Board – Roxanne Field

I’m semi retired from the interior design/project management industry. After selling my design practice in 2017, I relocated to the beautiful Wateridge Village community where I live with my husband, Graham and pup, Sasha. I enjoy painting, golfing and curling and walking with Sasha in our neighbourhood!

Vice President of the Board / Membership Lead – Daphne Jaques

I am a recent resident of Ottawa, having moved to Wateridge in 2018 after spending 30 years in Burlington, Ontario. I pride myself on being a team player with a talent for building relationships with members of my community and look forward to continuing in my new community as we grow and develop.

Secretary of the Board – Alasdair Stuart-Bell

 I am a father of two great children, happy partner of a wonderful woman, a small business owner, a 40+ year resident of the area, and an active volunteer. While my profession revolves around engaging people in discussions to better understand their needs, I hope that this skill will also be useful for our community. I look forward to working with other residents to ensure that Wateridge Village remains a fantastic place to live as the community evolves and grows.

Treasurer of the Board – Vivien Huang

My passion for numbers and transparent accounting began at the age of 8, when I opened my first bank account and watched money trickle in from my newspaper job.

Today, I am a public servant who has explored a career in audit, human resources, and most recently, corporate reporting. It is my pleasure to be your treasurer and I welcome your feedback and suggestions on how I can best serve the community! 

Events & Membership Lead – Duangsuda Sopchokchai 

I am originally from Thailand and I came to Canada to do my graduate study. I received my PhD in Economics from the University of Ottawa and currently doing economic research at Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. I am a passionate baker in my spare time, and I am obsessed with making sourdough bread. I enjoy the great outdoor—hiking, biking, diving, and, though I’m not very good, I really enjoy playing floor hockey!

Communications Lead – Vita Sgardello

A proud resident of Wateridge Village, I bring my experience in communications to the Wateridge Village Community  Association. By day I work for a local environmental organization, and in the past have worked as a community manager, journalist and copywriter. I am passionate about the outdoors, a terrible but adamant birdwatcher, and look forward to seeing our little community flourish and thrive.

Planning & Development Lead [interim] – Jane Thompson
