Economic Development Officer & CEO for NDC
I am a Nooaitch band member and have lived on Nooaitch Reserve #10 for over 20 years with my husband James Fountain and my two daughters, Natasha and Jocelyn. I have four beautiful grandchildren, Wade, Jamie, Jorden, and Rayna.
I have had the Opportunities to Work with Nooaitch Indian Band in previous years as a contractor and in the capacity to organize, facilitate, record, report, collecting, and engage during Community events e.g. Community Comprehensive Plan and By-law development.
I have previously been employed with the Nicola Tribal Association in their Research, GIS, Administration, Health, Finance, and Forestry Departments through different funding sources. In addition I have taught at Kelly Lake Cree Nation helping to create and start their Land Use Research Project.
It is a pleasure to work with the dedicated staff, which have been working diligently to provide policies so that equality is met with each registered band member of the Nooaitch Indian Band, Utilizing the Community Comprehensive Plan as a guide in the priority of the Nooaitch Band Membership becoming a balanced governance structure and helping the members, where possible, and identifying the gaps within the structure of the Nooaitch organization.
I am looking forward to working with the Nooaitch Chief, Council and Community as an Economic Development Officer.
