In 2015 I started my journey with Yellowknife Catholic Schools as the Administrative Assistant at Ecole St Joseph School. Along the way I served on the UNW Local 30 Executive Board as the Treasurer for 5 years. In 2021 I moved over to the Board Office and took on the position of Pay & Benefits Officer. This position is a big learning curve for me, but I am enjoying the challenge.

I grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. After completing a BA ın Sociology from the University of Saskatchewan, I moved north to work and lived in La Ronge/Air Ronge, Saskatchewan for 16 years before moving to Yellowknife in 2010 with my husband, Brent, and our family. We have three adult children and recently have welcomed a daughter-in-law. My faith is central to my life and our church family plays a big part in our life. I came to my position as Office Manager in the summer of 2019. Before accepting the position of Office Manager, I was involved with YCS in a variety of other roles, and have been glad to experience things from a range of perspectives. My job is built around keeping the office running smoothly. Most of the time, I will be the first person you will see when you arrive at the office or, if you call, I will likely answer the phone. I like to make sure that everyone is taken care of and has what they need. In my job that means greeting people and helping them with questions or directing them to the right individual. I am pleased to have a part-time office assistant helping with this as well. A big part of my job is all things related to Accounts Payable, including payment of all incoming bills, dealing with set up of and communication with vendors, processing expense claims for staff and home schooling parents, Visa reconciliation, and more. I also take care of Accounts Receivable, processing Purchase Orders for staff and taking care of purchasing for most of the office needs. I like working at the District Office and my interactions with staff, vendors, parents and the public, and I continue to enjoy my time with YCS.
