The Board

Meet your LFM Board Members and Volunteers

Nicole Frankovic

President

You can always find me and my husky/shepherd mix Sammy at Jack Darling or Lakeside off leash parks. If you see us around, feel free to say Hi. Sammy’s a certified therapy dog and loves meeting new people. This will be my first year on the board and I look forward to serving the LFM community.

Andrea Morrell

Vice President

I believe in giving back to the community and specifically helping causes near and dear to my heart. We’ve been enjoying LFM parks for many years – Jack Darling is a daily outing! – and have met wonderful park patrons (2 and four-legged). My husband and I have a passion for rescuing Golden Retrievers and volunteered for several years with the breed specific rescue. We recently welcomed our 5th Golden, Chester, to our family. I also have a background in corporate events, community investment and public relations and look forward to lending my experience in furthering the success of LFM.

Andrea will be stepping down from the role of Vice President in Spring 2024. If you are interested in this position, please contact us and submit your name for the role!

Michael Lee

Secretary

Hello! My name is Mike, and my family has called Mississauga home for over 6 years. Our most recent rescue is Jake, a very friendly German shepherd / Great Pyrenees puppy who loves chasing squirrels, being chased by other dogs at Parkway Belt, and getting an old-fashioned belly rub. We have made so many wonderful new friends (both dog and human) across a variety of LFM parks, and I’m excited for the opportunity to give back to the LFM community.

Off leash parks are a great privilege for dog owners and their pets. I want to contribute to their success including accessibility, cleanliness, funding and safety!

Catherine Williams

Park Rep – Etobicoke Valley

Hi, my name is Catherine and I am a high school teacher and avid fan of all dogs. My family and our dog Skye have been regular visitors of Etobicoke Valley for the past 5 years and we have seen this incredible park grow significantly in popularity. I am looking forward to representing the many hoomans and their dogs so that our park is as well-maintained, safe, and enjoyable as can be.

Marg Hempstead

Park Rep – Garnetwood

Hi my name is Margaret. I’ve been going to Mississauga’s Leash-Free Zones for many years and became the Park Representative for Garnetwood in 2021. I just want to make the dogs and their owners happy by having a very clean Leash-Free park for all to enjoy.

I’m Dan Harrington. You may have already met my gal Miley and I at Jack Darling? Please say hello if you see us on your next visit to Jack Darling!

Ellen Lockley

Park Rep – Lakeside

Hi, I am Ellen. I am a faithful member and supporter of Leash Free Mississauga and have been for almost 20 years, first with Jack Darling and more lately with Lakeside. My beautiful Tiberius is no longer here, but I continue to attend Lakeside on a regular basis and am happy to serve as the rep and support Leash Free in any way I can.

Robert Dowling

Park Rep – Totoredaca

I’m a retired Septuagenarian who has been bringing my dogs (currently my 8yr old Yellow Lab/Beagle Lily) to Toto for many years, and am proud to now represent the many great people that come there just to socialize with their dogs and the many others that also volunteer to help keep our parks clean and friendly.

Jennifer Agombar

Jennifer Agombar

Park Rep – Quineppenon

Hello, I’m Jennifer! I moved to Mississauga from Quebec over 20 years ago and have lived most of it in Streetsville. My husband Mike and I have two Shiba Inu’s; Ryu, our 3-year-old Red boy and Zara, our 7-year-old Creeping tan rescued girl and taking them to Quineppenon is part of our daily routine. It’s close to home, with lots of room to run and play or, in the case of my two pups, to wrestle each other! The park is clean and always stocked with poop bags or water, thanks to a dedicated group of owners who work very hard and are 100% the reason the park is so well maintained. We visit other parks on occasion, but Q is by far our favourite. As for me, I’m new to the board and hope I can contribute to keeping Q a clean, safe space for our beloved dogs to enjoy.

Project Manager in Civil Engineering and Construction, living and working in Mississauga. We have enjoyed the Mississauga Etobicoke Creek leash free park for many years. We recently moved to Malton Mississauga and have been enjoying the vibrant dog community in the newly opened Paul Coffey leash free park. Looking forward to growing and improving the Paul Coffey park with the help and support of local members.

Vivian Lo

Webmaster

Hi there! My name is Vivian and I’m a longtime enjoyer of Mississauga’s dog parks. I’m a proud dog mom to a very spoiled pup named Lotus! I joined LFM as I wanted to ensure safe and pet-friendly spaces for our four-legged family members.
