Gabriel Gonzalez, Secretary

Director Area 5: Revelstoke
(Oct. 2021-Oct. 2022)
Mail to Secretary

Originally from Luxembourg, Gabriel moved to Ottawa in 2014 and to the Riverside Park neighbourhood in 2017 with his wife and grumpy cat. With the pandemic, an energetic lab and a new baby at home, Gabriel had the opportunity to spend more time exploring the neighbourhood and meeting neighbours. That’s also how he first heard of the Community Association and grew interested in getting involved to make sure this remains one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Ottawa.

(Oct. 2021-Oct. 2022)

Katerina is one of the newest members on the Board of Directors. She moved with her family into our community about four years ago, after travelling across the country from British Columbia.

She enjoys nature, practices martial arts, and likes to do all sorts of arts and crafts.

Dave Coyle,
IT Manager

Director Area 5: Revelstoke
(Oct. 2021-Oct. 2022)
Mail to IT Management

As a young professional couple, we moved our family into the Mooney’s Bay community some 40 years ago. Raising our family of 4, the Mooney’s Bay community and Ottawa area continues to be very important for our now larger families.

I wish to raise community and board level awareness, to maintain and enhance the character, quality of life and affordability of this community.

I look to your support.

Michael Simms, Bookkeeper

Mail to Finance

As a RPCA area resident, with roots extending back to 1965, I grew up on Southmore Drive East, attended area schools and local parish, participated as a young player and coached as a teen in our community’s sports programs amongst other things. Returning in 2009 to our community with my wife Colleen (a designer) and three teenage children, we flipped homes on both Cromwell and Southmore settling in now on our third home on Cowan. I hope to support the RPCA in its efforts to continue delivering on its initiatives to provide ongoing wonderful experiences to our community.
