I am the Director of Operations for Souls Harbour Rescue Mission. I have a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling from Briercrest Seminary and a personal work history that includes 20 years in business management and 10 years of non-profit experience. Joining the Mission in February of 2010, I have had the privilege of taking care of both the people and the buildings of Souls Harbour Rescue Mission.
For many years, I worked in the grain and construction industries in a variety of accounting related roles. However in the last few years, I felt an increasing desire to work for an organization that was changing people’s lives for the better. Souls Harbour Rescue Mission gave me that opportunity in February of 2014. In my current role, I oversee the entire finance office and various HR components as well. I am continually amazed at how the businesses and people of Saskatchewan support our organization in the work that we do. It is a privilege to do what we do, and to work alongside other people who are also passionate about making a difference.
After working in the manufacturing industry, from the floor to management, for many years, I felt called to move from ‘building things’ to ‘building people.’ I have a passion to see the people that walk through the Mission’s doors, get the help they need; whatever their situation may be. It’s hard to believe that in a country as prosperous as ours, there are still so many people struggling to make ends meet; this shouldn’t be. If we all pitch in, together we can all change lives!
