Natasha Gribbon

President

Natasha Gribbon has been an active member of the Granite Club for over 20 years. She was introduced to the sport of curling over 30 years ago and it has been a part of her life ever since.  Her dedication and love of the sport has become evident through her various volunteer positions at the Club, including League President, Board Secretary and Director of Statistics to name a few. Her knowledge of the sport afforded her the opportunity to assist with the Women’s Worlds in 2018 and the Grand Slam of Curling in 2019/2022 and it’s her passion for the sport that drives her interest to stay involved on and off the ice. Now, in her current role, she is focused on continuing to support the ongoing work already underway and she is honored to be voted in again as President. Along with her experience, she brings with her a fresh perspective and a drive to support ideas and initiatives to make the Granite Club the most successful athletic center in Northern Ontario that promotes curling, tennis and pickleball. Outside of the club, she is a Senior Policy Advisor with the Ontario Government and a proud mother of two.
