Your District Rotaract Council

Katherine Kirkpatrick-wahl

District Rotaract Representative

Katherine was very excited to discover Rotaract, our mission of service, professional development, and of course, having fun was exactly what she was looking for. She officially joined in 2015, truly jumping in with both feet. Katherine served as professional development director for two and a half years before moving on to co-president and treasurer in 2018-19. She has been apart of five different Annual Fundraiser campaigns and organized two changeovers, so she really knows how to throw a party. Outside of Rotaract, Katherine works in construction management where she is, literally, changing the skyline of Toronto.

shauna moore

District Rotaract Chair

Shauna is thrilled to support District 7070’s Rotaract because of her passion for seeing young adults succeed and finding new ways to lead us to a better future. She joined the Rotary Club of Whitby in 2011 and was president of the club in 2017=2018. Working with, teaching and coaching high school and college-aged students for the past 12 years, she has been a cheerleader for student success with a focus on those who face barriers! In her spare time, she can be found taking pictures of nature – the sky especially, having a deep conversation and asking a lot of questions- mostly, why not?

Ankita Sethi

District Secretary

In Rotaract since 2017, Ankita decided to extend her Rotaract experience by being on the District Board of 2020-21. She strongly believes in the goodness of the world, and its ability to become an equitable place for everyone. In her role as the Secretary, she wishes to be a binding force, and connect Rotaractors from different clubs together, and provide the communication required for Rotaractors to seek new opportunities, and achieve their personal goals. She enjoys a good Netflix binge, philosophical and aviation talks, and jumping off the plane once in a while.
