Meet Our Board Members

Pam Gellhaus
– Chair

Pam is a sincere and enthusiastic board member that is always willing to help and provide encouragement.

Pam brings optimism and fair-mindedness to this board.

I moved to Strathcona County in 1974, along with my husband Clay.  We have been blessed with 3 amazing children who have all traveled in different paths than we would have ever thought.  I joined the CCLF in the spring of 2015 and have been a member at large and am currently the Chair.  I have worked, and continue to work, on the Governance Committee, the Grant Committee and most recently on the Strategic Planning Committee. I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a BA(PE) in 1971.  I worked for nearly 23 years as a Junior High teacher in the Elk Island Catholic School District.  Before that, I taught for a year in Prince Albert SK and then adults at NorQuest in Edmonton.  I retired 5 years ago so I could spend more time with our 4 grandkids. In my free time, and I use that term very loosely, I still substitute teach, I like gardening on our acreage, golfing when the weather permits, and swimming with my deep water friends.

Cindy Selinske
– Member at Large

Cindy is enthusiastic about making Strathcona County an even better place to live, and her experience with not-for-profits, both as a Human Resources professional and as a volunteer, helps guide the Board of the County Clothes-line Foundation to make sound policy decisions.

Cindy brings a background of human resources within Gov. and Nonprofit organizations. We are eager to have Cindy apply her expertise in developing a strong succession plan for the Board and its future endeavors.

I moved to Sherwood Park in 2003 from Edmonton.  After graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Education I took a temporary job in Human Resources and remain in the field having worked in both government and not for profit organizations.  I joined the Board of the County Clothes-Line Foundation in January of 2017 and hope to use my Human Resources experience while working on the Board. I enjoy yoga, interior design, and travel.  I have had the opportunity to travel to the United States, England, Greece, and Asia.

She facilitates grief and bereavement education seminars is a writer and author and most recently is developing a new standup comedy career. She was representative for the Viking and Beaver County Family and Support Services on the FCSS provincial board but leaving that community meant she had to give up her position.
