Venissa de Castro

Organizer in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

I am one of the most interesting people that you’ll ever know because I always have something going on. I believe in being involved in the community.

I love Ottawa.

In short, I volunteer, play ultimate, paddle, run, organize, e-mail.

Long version, I’m involved.

My time is focused on connecting with individuals and recruiting year-round for half a dozen community-based events.

I am a proud sister of Delta Phi Epsilon and currently serve as Lead Advisor on the Chapter Advisory Board for the women of the Zeta Epsilon at Carleton University.

In 2011, I worked countless hours as the marketing coordinator for the 25th Canadian Ultimate Championships. It was amazing to help bring together and host over 1500 players from across the country!

Recently, I completed managing the 2017 Canadian Ultimate Championships, the national championships for the sport of Ultimate, and a qualifying event for the World Ultimate Club Championships taking place during Canada's 150th year. As one of the Tournament Directors for the event, I led a team of volunteers in hosting over 2000 athletes from across the country over an eight day tournament.

I take great pride in being the team organizer for not one, but two dragon boat teams, the all female Psirens and our co-ed recreational team, the P’sidens. I’m so proud to see what I’ve started flourish and develop.

I think BIG PICTURE but I know that it’s the tiny detailed logistics that get you there. Between the powers of my smart phone, my FranklinCovey planner and Google everything, I’m not intimidated to tackle almost any project.

I energetically live up to my twitter name.

Naps help.
