Town of Foam Lake, Saskatchewan

"Upon hiring Shelley Thoen Chaykoski of TC Consulting as Project Co-ordinator for Foam Lake’s Water Park Construction and Revitalization project, it was apparent our community made the right choice.  Shelley Thoen-Chaykoski has a vast familiarity with community recreation, and is well-versed in just what is needed in a large recreational facility of this nature.  Her skill in building relationships with contractors and tradesmen was vital to the project; and her no-nonsense approach to the project ensured timelines were adhered to as closely as possible.  TC Consulting is a proven performer … need tangible proof? Come check out our newly opened Foam Lake Water Park!"


Saskatchewan Parks & Recreation Association


“The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association contracted Shelley to research how Recreation Boards in Saskatchewan function and then produce a manual related to developing or re-establishing a Recreation Board in a community.  Shelley’s passion and understanding of rural Saskatchewan and the people that live there  allowed her to achieve all the desired outcomes and produce a quality resource.  It was a pleasure to work with her”


Saskatchewan's Sport, Culture & Recreation Districts


Shelley was able to quickly grasp what we wanted to accomplish and had some great ideas on how to achieve our goals. She has a wide variety of community recreation experience and real life scenarios in her background that she could draw information from and share with our organizations. She asked the right probing questions and really listened to our answers to ensure that she was meeting our needs. We strongly recommend Shelley’s services to organizations who wish to accomplish work that puts them on the road to success!
