Shawna Joynt

Vice President, Acting Treasurer & Deaf Curling Committee Chair

Bonjour!!! My name is Shawna Joynt. I have been the Vice President of MDSA since 2014. I have been involved in a variety of sports all my life. I have four boys that are also actively in involved in a variety of sports.

A dear friend and partner of mine that passed away had a passion for sports, and wanted to see equal treatment in all sports whether deaf or hearing, and unlimited access to interpreting. I promised I’d fight to the end and see those dreams become reality.

*Life is full of choices and it’s you writing your own life.*

I volunteer a lot of my time in both worlds (hearing and deaf/hard of hearing). I love it😉
