Beth Wilson - Executive Director
Email Beth

Began working for the Society in September 1991

Beth completed the Social Services Worker Diploma program at Northern Lights College in April of 1991. She was initially hired as an instructor. Shortly after that an opportunity arose to move into an assistant manager role while continuing to instruct part time. The job then evolved into manager for the Society under one contract and then evolved further as the Society grew to maintain multiple contracts.  In 2011 she completed a Master of Arts in Leadership program at Royal Roads University.

Beth's job is quite comprehensive as she must be intimately familiar with all aspects of the Society's operations. She secures funding for day to day operations, oversees daily operations, administers contracts, acts as liaison with local agencies and ministries, supervises staff, develops new programs and services, and works with the Society's board.  When time allows, she enjoys filling in as a workshop facilitator.  She still has time for any who walk into her office.

Beth enjoys spending time with her family, particularly her four grandchildren.  Any spare time she enjoys can find her reading, doing one of a variety of 'creating' pursuits, or learning something new.

Email Kristine

Began working for the Society in January 2016

Kristine's educational training began at age 18 with an Office Administration Certificate from Northern Lights College following her return to upgrading to achieve her graduation diploma.  She worked at a variety of customer service and management positions then opened her own retail store selling books.  While owning her own business, she continued learning through workshops and online courses.  As a lifelong learner she is currently deciding what she will do next.

Kristine's job involves planning, organizing, and implementing intakes where she is the lead Training Counsellor.  As part of the process she interviews potential clients for acceptance into the program, facilitates group sessions during the intake, and provides support to participants as they complete of the program.  When the intake is happening in a community other than Dawson Creek, her day also includes a long commute.

Kristine's favourite thing to do is laugh!  And, it is still all about the books in both her personal and professional life ("Do we really need a couch?  Or should I downsize my book collection?).
