I was born and raised in BC and earned my degree in psychiatric nursing. I wound up my career as coordinator for a short stay community mental health emergency facility. Some of my previous volunteer experience includes serving on a not-for-profit board and building committee. Both I and my spouse enjoy browsing through many of BC’s museums and have particular interest in the lives of those everyday people who contributed to the development of the province. Our long-held dream of living on one of BC’s beautiful gulf islands brought us to Pender. Being new to the island – and museum – I look forward to learning more about the Penders we now call home.
