Born and raised in North Vancouver, Darlene moved to Bowen Island in 1991 where she lived for the next 20 years raising her children. While on Bowen she spent 10 years working as Controller and Marina Manager at a private marina resort with a 200 slip marina, retail store, pub/restaurant and cottage accommodation.
Darlene made the move to Powell River and the position of Lund Harbour Manager in 2012. She greatly appreciates the work of the HAABC as the organization was so valuable to her in the learning curve from Private Marina to Small Craft Harbour. Darlene joined the board of HAABC in 2016 and brings the perspective of the smaller harbour’s needs to the table.
Over the years she has sat on several boards from Family Place, Teen Centre, Local Festivals and most recently the Powell River Christmas Cheer Committee.
