Marliese Brabender
Name: Marliese Brabender
Shift: Saturday 5 a.m. - 9 a.m.

How long have you been volunteering at YYC?
Since September of 1991 (from the very start!)

About Marliese:
I enjoy being a White Hat Volunteer very much because it allows me to utilize the four languages I speak- German, French, Spanish and English. It really helps out when meeting international flights. I also like to travel and have been on every continent on Earth including Antarctica!

What is your favorite thing about your shift at YYC?
I really enjoy Saturday mornings because most people departing are going on a holiday not a business trip. Everyone is always very excited and I enjoy being a part of that. I also really enjoy working with my team and the security people. It is a great place on Saturday mornings.

What has been the highlight of volunteering at YYC?
My highlight of volunteering happened just a few weeks ago when I met Adrienne Clarkson. We took a photo together which was very special to me.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy exercising and keeping physically fit. I also enjoy travelling and my occupation as a hair stylist.
