PETER CANTELON - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Peter Cantelon brings to the CFDC a wealth of board and management experience in the fields of business development, marketing and communications. With no formal education in palaeontology Peter draws on his extensive background in journalism and research to act as a spokesperson for the CFDC (not to mention a lifelong enthusiasm for fossils and geology). His passion is people and this is brought to bear in every aspect of his role where he is focused on working with staff to grow the CFDC into a national and international centre for fossil exhibition, education and research. When he is not working he enjoys spending time with his family and writing.

Cheryl brings a lot of experience to her job here at the museum. Cheryl spent the last portion of her life managing the Morden Chamber of Commerce and working in administration for the Corn and Apple festival. However, in her past, she was a part of the board for the CFDC. The board that she as a part of was actually the group that changed the name of the museum from "The Morden and District Museum" to "The Canadian Fossil Discovery Center".  She has a lot of memories of what the museum was like many years ago and is excited to be working here in administration to continue making improvements. When she's not working at the museum Cheryl enjoys dancing, curling, golfing, gardening, and playing cribbage.
