Darlene Petrie has 37 years of working in the helping profession in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She is a mother of 3 adult children, grandmother of 5 and a proud great-grandmother of 1 beautiful 6-year old girl. She is a graduate of Cape Breton University with a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Community Studies and is currently working towards her degree in International Relations. Her passion throughout her career was supporting children and youth experiencing homelessness and creating programs for children and youth in conflict with the law.  

Darlene has always prided herself in creating programs and services for people, young and old, who have “fallen through the cracks”. Darlene saw a gap in services in scam prevention. So, during her retirement, she has now added to her repertoire, scam prevention education and awareness. She founded Scam Prevention International (SPI) in October 2019. With the number of people being scammed, worldwide, the amount of money being lost and the heartbreak that is caused, Darlene’s passion is bringing awareness to as many women 50+ years as possible and educating them of the many types of scams, what to look for and how to prevent being scammed and having their identity stolen.  

Darlene's favourite quote is: You have so much power to bring awareness, prevention and change. By Ashley Judd
