Mecheliena is engaged in the community through participation in charity events such as ONERun and supporting her two boys with the London Junior Mustangs football organization. Believing Girl Guides of Canada is a place to foster strong female relationships, she joined together with her daughter as a Leader of a local Sparks unit.
Personally, Mecheliena is an explorer who thrives on seeking new places whether it’s a new hiking path, visiting a new country or taking a new route on a family road trip. As a part of a football family (everyone likes a different team which keeps it interesting), Mecheliena and her husband have an annual trip to visit NFL cities with friends. As the kids get older we look forward to having them as part of the annual tradition.
