Smart on Crime in Waterloo Region

Juanita Metzger

Juanita is one of the two Community Engagement Coordinators at the Crime Prevention Council. Having spent several years working in local community development, her most recent work moved to the virtual world of online engagement and social media.
Juanita’s passion is change – change that transforms our communities into better places for everyone. With equal parts ‘big idea’ and ‘make-a-plan-and-get-it-done’ Juanita can often be found in the middle of exciting and challenging ‘changes in progress’.

A lifelong resident of Waterloo Region, Juanita lives in a vibrant Kitchener neighbourhood where residents are actively engaged in sustainability projects and education, neighbourhood parties and social events, urban agriculture and knit nights - a connected community indeed.
