A vacation in Prince Rupert was enough to convince Sharon to leave the hustle and bustle of Vancouver city life behind her. As the newest member of our Prince Rupert team she’s been impressed with her warm ‘Rupertite’ welcome, loves seeing deer almost every day but is still getting used to the six-minute commute (down from an hour and a half each day).

More recently, she spent eight years with the Office of the Auditor General of Canada auditing the Federal and Territorial Governments and their Crown Corporations and Agencies (including Not-For-Profit Organizations).
