  • I've known Joylin for about 5 years from the Winter Club and she is definitely a ray of sunshine to everyone's day. She is an amazing mom, coach, athlete and above all ... A great friend. This is really a person that would give you the shirt off her back in a moments notice. Her work ethic and loyalty are beyond reproach. She is one to vote for.

  • I know Joylin from the Winter Club. She is a phenomenal athlete in that she is committed to her training and has abundant energy for getting things done. She is a mother of 3 and a devoted wife and has dedicated time and resources to their success.

    Joylin is focused on solving problems, negotiation and creating solutions that are effective and simple. Her sense of humor and solid ground is what makes Joylin a reliable long term candidate. She excels in what she focuses on. This city would be lucky to have her as an alderman. I am grateful to know her.

  • Joylin has been my swimming coach for approximately 2 1/2 years. I have found her to be competent, organized, articulate, professional, extremely energetic and full of boundless enthusiasm. She is caring, compassionate, concerned and very supportive towards the people with whom she interacts.

  • Joylin is a person with immense energy and passion. Never thinking about herself and always there for others. She has been through some very difficult times in her life but she never gives up hope and always has a positive outlook. I often reflect and say to myself, "How does she do it?"

    If I was to speak to others I would say, "She would never have pretenses. Yet, she is good at spotting others of false qualities. She is first in line to confront inequities and injustice [as I have witnessed]. She is extremely approachable and at ease. She is an amazing individual who will hold her heart on her sleeve to hold your troubles and concerns. And, I no doubt believe she will work hard to resolve them. There are so many words that could describe Joylin. Honest, kind, smart, practical, giving and most of all a hard worker. My kids often joke they want Joylin as their second Mother. If she was running in my ward, I would vote for Joylin.

  • I have known Joylin for many years and have always been amazed at her efficiency, thoughtfulness and positive influences. She is so giving and active in the community. The kids adore her as a swim coach and she is an inspiring athlete herself. She is a valuable community volunteer. She is such a ray of sunshine and quite the powerhouse. I look forward to see her channeling some of that awesome energy towards improving ward 7 and the rest of Calgary

  • Joylin, as her name suggests, epitomizes JOY — which, according to King Solomon, is medicine for the soul and reminiscent of heavenly places.

  • We had the most pleasurable experience of having Joylin coach our daughter on a competitive swim team.  Joylin was professional and firm, yet kind and compassionate.  My daughter (as did all the others) loved her.  She would challenge them but yet understand that they were also there to have fun and a social experience.

    I felt that Joylin really understood the balance between hard work and dedication and having fun.  I always felt that she truly loved the sport and children and her passion showed through.  She is just a really lovely person!

  • Joylin has been our Masters Swim Coach for the last couple of years.  Her dedication, passion and enthusiasm has been contagious.   She continually goes above and beyond in supporting the team in many different ways through some great times as well as through some challenging times.  She has addressed all obstacles with the same kind of perseverance and positive attitude.  We have been very lucky to have her!

  • Joylin was part of the U of C Swim Club for many years and served as a fantastic role model for my two sons.  She was a tenacious competitor then and now, as a marathoner.  She perseveres and even if she 'hits the wall', she will keep going until she reaches her goal. Her team spirit in sports will serve her well as Councillor.  She is energetic and has a great work ethic.

  • Joylin Nodwell is someone exceptional who makes everybody feel important. I can only imagine how she is going to take this ability to public life. She will care about everyone's opinion and well being to the best of her abilities, I am convinced of that.
