We are currently working to compile biographies and photos of all members of the RRCA Board of Directors. Check back for updates!

Paul Storwick, President

Paul has lived in our community since 1996.  He and his wife Shirley have 3 children who all attended Rideau Park Elementary School.  He was born and raised in SW Calgary and is currently COO/President of a family-owned heavy truck franchised dealership (becoming the third generation in the family business).  He obtained a degree in Business Administration/Personnel Management from Gonzaga University in Spokane.  He has served on several committees and Boards in both the educational realm and industry.  Paul has enjoyed volunteering as leader for the Cub Scouts and Beavers in our community as well as the United Way of Calgary.  In past years, you could also find building sets and props for numerous school plays.  He is keenly interested in all sports and outdoor activities as well as preserving military history and artifacts.  

Carl Brown, Vice President

Carl has been a proud resident of the Rideau Roxboro community for over 22 years and the Rink Master for over 10 years.  He is passionate about ice-making, ice grooming and resurfacing.  When the seasonal temperature dips below 0 degrees Celsius and the snow flakes start to fly – Carl is in his element!  From late October until early March, Carl can be found at the Roxboro Park ice rinks daily, tending to the ice like frozen zen gardens – methodically filling cracks and divots and smoothing the surface to a silky sheen with his trusted Zamboni! 

When Carl isn’t making ice, he can be found passing his days behind the desk as the CTO of International energy technology company. 

Kerry Mothersill, Treasurer

Kerry has been a resident in the Rideau Roxboro community for 34 years.  He has wonderful memories of raising his two children in the community with frequent visits to the park and birthday parties at the skating rink.  Most evenings, he can be seen walking his dog Ryley through the streets and along the river.  He has been on the RRCA Board since February 2021, serving as Treasurer.   

Currently Dr. Mothersill is the Coordinator of the Regional Psychological Assessment Service (Calgary Zone, AHS), is an Adjunct Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Calgary and provides professional services in his private practice.  He graduated in 1980 from the University of Western Ontario with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Experimental Psychopathology and has practiced in Calgary since 1982. 

Amy Wallner – Crime Watch 

The Crimewatch communication portfolio is currently managed by Amy Wallner, a Roxboro resident of nearly 20 years.  Amy obtained two Fine Arts degrees from Queens University and the University of Victoria.  She has spent much of her professional career working in the Calgary advertising industry – but her first job in Calgary was actually as a provincially- licensed Private Investigator!  Amy has enjoyed taking over the Crimewatch detail as a way to connect with and contribute to her community. 

Tom Lester – Traffic 

Tom graduated in 1973 with a BA (Geography/Economics) and went on to further study achieving an MBA from the University of Western Ontario.  He has had a varied career in the oil and gas industry spanning federal provincial and private jurisdictions in executive capacities.  He has been involved with a variety of business and not-for-profit endeavours, including fund-raising for out-reach programs and chairing the Board of Directors of the Art Gallery of Calgary.  In this capacity, Tom oversaw the acquisition of two heritage buildings on Stephen Avenue, together with managing a $3 million capital campaign.  Tom and his wife Heather have lived in Rideau for 32 years.  He has been involved with traffic issues with the RRCA for the past ten years.  

Evelyn Vandenhengel – 4th Street Gardens, Website Co-ordinator 

Evelyn obtained a BA (Developmental Studies) from the University of Winnipeg (1975) and a Masters Degree in Continuing Education (Leadership/Workplace Learning) (2005 from the University of Calgary.  She enjoyed a full career in the oil and gas industry as a Landman, managing the Land Department of an intermediate oil and gas company.  In retirement, Evelyn thoroughly enjoys digging in the 4th Street gardens with an enthusiastic team.  Evelyn and her husband Bill have lived in Rideau for 35 years in one of our neighbourhood’s traditional (circa 1921) “arts and crafts” homes.  She enjoys the outdoors and is a keen mountain hiker, runner and cyclist.  On the RRCA Board since 2015, she currently co-ordinates website content – so if you have ideas, articles, photos you’d like to post – be in touch!  

Michelle Dudar – Casino Co-ordinator

Michelle, and her husband Chris, have lived in Rideau since 2011 and love the diversity, character, and people of the neighbourhood. 

Unlike other board members who volunteer in positions that reflect their passions, Michelle (the casino coordinator) can’t tell you if “3-of-a-kind” or a “flush” is better!  Michelle appreciates that the casino efforts pay out handsomely for the time invested by the volunteers, and what those funds ultimately do for the community.  

Michelle’s career has been focused in corporate finance and she currently works for a small consulting firm.  

Tony Morris – Development 

Over the past 20 years, Tony Morris and his wife Jennifer Strain have raised their 3 boys in what they think is the best community in Calgary. Tony retired in January, 2023 after 32 years of practicing law. With others he founded the Calgary River Communities Action Group (www.protectcalgary.com) in 2013 to respond to the southern Alberta floods of that summer, and has been its Co-President for the last 9 years. He believes in the power and effect of thoughtful community advocacy to help guide the decisions of our elected officials, especially concerning Rideau-Roxboro and his wonderful neighbours.  The community is very grateful for Tony’s tireless work in not only guiding the River Communities Action Group but also for his recent efforts in educating and guiding our community through the City decision-making process of city-wide rezoning. 

Krizia Napolitano

Krizia and her family have lived in Roxboro for two years.  She particularly enjoys all of the old homes in the community and the abundance of trees.  Krizia brings experience from management consulting to her challenging role of Secretary to the Board.  Krizia is passionate about Neapolitan pizza, architecture and organized meeting Minutes!  In her spare time, Krizia likes to walk her dog Charlie and to play soccer.
