Tim Newell has been involved with HATS since 2009 when he went on his first visit to Haiti after hearing of the devastation from hurricanes in the area. Wanting to do something, his wife challenged him by asking, “What is stopping you?” That challenge led to his first incredible experience in Haiti, followed by another visit in 2010 with his wife Heidi & their three children. They were in Haiti during the earthquake but were thankfully protected throughout that experience. Tim has worked in Information Technology and computer security for the past twenty years. He lives in Nova Scotia and currently serves as Board President.
