On the international level, Helen has been Canada Area director (1984-1985), first and second vice-president, and international president (1989-90). She was also instrumental in organizing Quota International of Mariposa-Silver “Q”, where she is currently serving as Hearing and Speech Committee chair.

Several days later, Quota International of Mariposa, along with many members from the Orillia club, gathered to honored Helen at their regular meeting. Outside of Quota, Helen enjoys knitting, reading, and gardening. Through the years, she has been involved in many charitable organizations, including the Richmond Group Home for Girls, the Canadian Cancer Society, and UNICEF.
