Margaret was born in London, Ontario and moved to Vancouver Island along with her young son in 1995. She brings to Forestry Council over 20 years experience in all aspects of the accounting cycle in Government, Not-For-Profit, and Private Sector.
When Margaret isn’t crunching numbers she can be found paddling on the ocean in either a Dragon Boat or an Outrigger Canoe. She has been slowly visiting some of the nearby islands and a top priority on her bucket list is to eventually visit every island surrounding Vancouver Island. That is one tall order!
