Ethel and her husband moved back to BC in 2016 from Red Deer, Alberta. Ethel was born and raised in BC and they moved to Alberta in 2005 for what they thought was going to be a couple of years but ended up being eleven. Even with family, friends, colleagues and business associates still in Red Deer that will be sadly missed, Ethel has to admit that she is thrilled to be back home again in BC.

Ethel dedicates her time to the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce and has been on the Government Affairs Committee and a local Chamber Member since 2017.
