Our Team

Dolly Shinhat, Director-General

Dolly has over 30 years experience in the fields of fundraising and philanthropy. She joined Our Harbour in March 2017 when she took on the new role of Director General. Her vision is to make sure that Our Harbour develops secure and long-term sources of financial and volunteer support to sustain the organization’s mission. At Our Harbour, she enjoys working with the Board, the staff team and the dedicated volunteers; they are truly a family. “Having a close relationship with the people that we serve makes working at Our Harbour very meaningful,” says Dolly.

Sabine Bulow, Lead Coordinator

Sabine joined the Our Harbour team in June 2022 as Lead Coordinator of Resident Care. She worked in the public health care system for twenty-one years, the last decade in inpatient and outpatient psychiatry. As she transitions to the non-profit sector, she is enjoying the opportunity to apply her extensive experience, skills, and knowledge to provide support and guidance in a non-clinical environment. Her educational background includes a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from McGill University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Therapeutic Recreation from Dalhousie University. When not working, she enjoys spending time with family, Fidius, her new puppy, and with friends in outdoor activities.

Eric Godin, Assistant to the Director General

Since beginning at Our Harbour in January 2022, Eric has performed wonders, supporting the Director General, the resident care team and our committees in various administrative tasks. His background as an office administrator for a local church has served him well. With the Clubhouse immediately adjacent to the Our Harbour office, he has plenty of opportunity for rewarding interactions with residents and volunteers.

Vanessa Hunt-Ladouceur, Coordinator of Resident Care

Vanessa Hunt-Ladouceur was recently hired as the new Coordinator of Resident Care at Our Harbour. Initially studying psychology and social work at university, she followed her dream to become a social worker, first at a CLSC, then at a CHSLD and now with us. She has long wanted to work with people from all walks of life who have been touched by mental illness.
