Airdrie’s Jodie Amsing seems to have boundless energy.
The mother of two children, ages 11 and seven, not only works full time, but she also spends her evenings taking her kids to sporting practices and games.
Amsing also volunteers many hours as treasurer of the Airdrie Ringette Board Association as well as treasurer for her son’s hockey team.
She says it can be a challenge to maintain her schedule, but insists it is worthwhile, saying her hockey and ringette communities are like family.
“Everything is scheduled, but it is worth it,” says Amsing. “If no one volunteered, the kids couldn’t play.”
She manages her busy schedule mostly only on her own, as her husband David Amsing works away about 22 days a month.
David is so impressed with how hard his wife works for her family and community.
“Her schedule is five nights a week with volunteer work and running the kids around,” he says. “She is the hardest-working Airdrie mother out there, and words truly cannot describe the size of her heart.”
