Member Profile: Bronwyn Masson

Bronwyn was recently recognized for her significant volunteer work for LETC. Due to a previous engagement, she was unable to attend the awards ceremony, and the award was accepted on her behalf by her agent, and co-conspirator, Teresa. What people might not know is that Bronwyn has a wicked sense of humour, and a long bike ride with her results in oxygen debt due to extreme bouts of laughter.
