PAST INTERNATIONAL DIRECTOR
Sangeeta Jatia, from Kolkata, West Bengal, India, was elected to serve a two-year term as a director of Lions Clubs International at the association’s 95th International Convention, held in Busan, Korea, June 22 through 26, 2012.
Past Director Jatia is an economics graduate from Calcutta University.
A member of the Calcutta Midtown Lions Club since 1988, she has held many offices within the association, including club president, district Sight First chair, district coordinator, vice district governor and multiple district Leadership chair. Additionally, she served as a member of Mission 30 and Team 20K, a GMT area leader, on the DGE Seminar Faculty and as coordinator of the India edition of LION Magazine.
In recognition of her service to the association, she has received numerous awards including Lion of the Year, Membership Advancement Key, six Extension Awards, 11 International President’s Awards and the Ambassador of Good Will Award, the highest honor the association bestows upon its members. She is also a Progressive Melvin Jones Fellow.
Past Director Jatia and her spouse, Arvind, also a Lion, have two children.
She helps people live beyond definition – helping them live on their own terms, redefine what they are truly capable of, and embrace goals that are meaningful to them.
Four-time Olympian and 2x Olympic gold medalist, Heather Moyse is a multi-sport athlete and highly respected motivational speaker. She’s competed internationally in track cycling, rugby and women’s bobsleigh, in which she and her teammate won gold medals at the Vancouver and Sochi Winter Olympic Games in 2010 and 2014, respectively. And, in 2016, was the first Canadian female (and only second Canadian ever) to be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame.
Having overcome multiple career-threatening injuries to achieve the highest levels of success, Heather uses her personal experiences – and professional training as an occupational therapist – to encourage and inspire others to embrace challenges and believe in the possibilities of achieving their dreams, and maximize their potential whether in sport, in business, or in life.
To further personally embrace these points, Heather summited the highest mountain in Antarctica in January 2016 to raise awareness and money for a charity.
And if all of that wasn’t enough… to help even more people, Heather wrote a book called Redefining ‘Realistic’ – a personal invitation to her readers to believe in the possibilities, and discover, for themselves, what they are truly capable of. She is now also coaching and mentoring to help people live beyond their excuses and step into their best lives ever.
