President

Meet Monica

Monica Hampu and her husband came to Canada 22 years ago from the beautiful Transylvanian city of Sibiu, Romania. Together they worked hard, had two boys and integrated very quickly into the Canadian community. On their journey to establishing themselves, they were faced with many challenges and needless to say, as they overcame all of them one at a time.

It has been said that when you are content and satisfied you feel empowered to help others who need to become happy! Growing up in a communist country, her parents taught Monica from a very young age to share and to help others. Because this seed was implanted in her a long time ago, she has been searching for a platform where she can use all her knowledge and skills to be of use to others.

Monica is a very successful Credit Counsellor with Solutions Credit Counselling and a Money Coach with Women and Money. Helping others through her career determined her to get involved in the community with the Maple Ridge Community Foundation, to add value and make a difference locally. She is proud and honored to be part of this organization and to call Maple Ridge home.

Meet Ernie

I’m a Maple Ridge kid……My family roots go back to the 1870’s; my grandmother was a Hampton, one of Maple Ridge’s pioneer families. I attended school in Maple Ridge; a proud Maple Ridge Secondary alumni~ Go Ramblers!

Judy and I raised our two now married children in Maple Ridge and now they in turn are raising our really cute grandkids here.

Judy & I owned and operated Windsor Plywood in Maple Ridge for 24 years, a family business that provided building materials to our community. Since wrapping up the Windsor part of work life, I went to work for the Baptist Housing Society. Taking part in a redevelopment project in Oak Bay and serving as an Administrator for a Maple Towers has been very fulfilling.

Volunteering and serving the community was instilled in me by both my parents and grandparents. Over the years I have served on a number of not for profit community groups that have provided many opportunities to give back to the community that has been so good to our family. It’s been a privilege to serve Maple Ridge for 12 years on Council, 6 of those years as Mayor until November of 2014.

The Maple Ridge Community Foundation has been doing amazing work in our community for 40 years. I feel privileged to be part of the Board of Directors and looking forward to the future holds for the Foundation. #WeAreMapleRidge

Meet Kim

I spent the first two years navigating our way in a new country and supporting our two children as well as volunteering in their classrooms and on their sports teams.  I have worked for a local Chiropractic clinic and support my husband in our family business. 

I have grown up knowing the importance of being involved in our community and helping where help is needed.  I have chosen to continue to do this into adulthood and show and teach our children to do the same.
