Gail Moody celebrates her retirement from Healthy Beginnings

Gail Moody retires after over a decade at Bella Coola’s Healthy Beginnings

After 12 years, Gail Moody has retired as Program Manager for Healthy Beginnings.

After 12 years, Gail Moody has retired as Program Manager for Healthy Beginnings. Gail was instrumental in taking Healthy Beginnings from its original pregnancy outreach and child/infant development programs to a multifaceted resource for families in the Bella Coola Valley.

Gail’s leadership brought the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and Speech and Language programs into being, and helped with the transfer of the Supportive Child Development program to the Nuxalk Nation.

Her dedication to networking and collaborating enabled the creation of a beautiful new building to house these programs, and included the creation of traditional plant and kitchen gardens to augment the grounds. The new building is graced with a pole carved by recently deceased master carver, Art Saunders, and which honours her late son, Scott Moody.

Gail worked tirelessly as a nurturer of and advocate for the children of this community and their families. Her love for each and every family shone through in her dedication to helping clients build on their strengths to become the best parents they can be. She enthusiastically shared her joy of reading, science, animals and clowning with kids, young and old, at many community events and health fairs.

We know that everyone will join in wishing Gail the happiest of retirements as she starts the next phase of her journey and in thanking her for years of her dedication and love.
