MEET SARAH!


How long have you been working with WB?
Since September 2017.

How would you describe your role with WB?
I’m responsible for engagement with government and community stakeholders and managing WB’s relationship with the Squamish Nation and Lil’wat Nation, the shared traditional territory upon which the resort operates.

What is your big hairy audacious goal?
Writing a novel.

What is one skill that you feel like you have developed over your career?
I hope I’ve improved my listening and leadership skills – and, after years of making presentations, public speaking is less daunting as the years go by.

What work-related accomplishment are you most proud of?
It is an honour to have the opportunity to work on maintaining our
partnership with the Lil’wat and Squamish First Nations that was established by Dave Brownlie and Doug Forseth.

 

Now to the good stuff….

What is the one thing that you always keep with you?
A friendship bracelet from my eldest son.

What’s the most mischievous thing you did as a child?
I was a latch-key kid from grade 3. I remember riding our bikes after school to the corner store (on the highway that we were NOT supposed to be
anywhere near) to buy Fun Dip.  

What was your first job?
Working the counter at a dry cleaners in West Vancouver.

How do you like to spend your free time?
I like to spend as much time as possible on the mountains with my kids. When they get sick of me, I enjoy skiing, paddle boarding, cooking, and teaching and practicing yoga.

What is something that you should throw away, but can’t?
Halloween costumes and adorable outfits that my kids wore when they were babies.

If you could pick up a skill in an instant, what would it be?
Playing piano.
