Christine is a new comer to the beautiful city of Victoria, moving here from Parksville, for a lifestyle change, as many do. She brings with her years of dedication and business experience. Christine went to UVI for accounting, but quickly recognized her passion was not only with numbers but people also. So combining business administration & client service, she was a natural in Hotel Management & the Tourism Industry. She was extremely involved with the community serving as Treasurer& Director for several terms on the Chamber of Commerce, Oceanside Tourism Association, and the BCMCRA & Parksville Rotary.
After retiring from the tourism industry, she took some time for herself to travel, golf, enjoy her family and also to assist several seniors she had come to know through the years of working with snowbirds, newcomers, and welcome wagon groups. After the recognition of the lack of essential services for seniors, she was approached to review district 69 services and develop programs that were lacking in our community for seniors. Christine developed, advocated and facilated programs to assist seniors, for almost 10 years. During that period she obtained her CPCA designation. This program is conducted by the Canadian Academy of Senior Advisors, Canada’s premier Academy training professionals about the changing needs of aging clients and customers. As a professional leader she continues to volunteer with Seniors Entitlement Services to meet the key needs and issues concerning maturing Canadians in Victoria.
To enjoy the beauty of the city she is an avid walker, she loves the Music, Arts & Entertainment Victoria has to offer and hopes to attend all 101 festivals.
