I am into my sixth year serving as Office Administrator at NWCRC. I am married to Brent and have two teenage sons. My connection with NWCRC began in 2006 when my oldest son Oliver attended Beehive Christian Preschool. Oliver and my younger son Elvin both grew up attending the Beehive Preschool and John Knox Christian School.
I was born in Hong Kong, my parents moved our family to Winnipeg over 30 years ago. I worked and lived in Ottawa for 7 years before moving to Burnaby in 2000.
I am a BCs and MSc graduate with an area of interest in Computer Graphics. I worked in the telecommunications industry and owned a print shop before serving as Office Administrator at NWCRC. I feel very blessed that God has opened this door of opportunity–I enjoy the variety of tasks and the creativity required in my position, and I am thankful to be able to use many of the skills gained from my previous work experiences. There is so much to learn, and never a boring day working at NWCRC.
Over the years, God has taught me how to trust in Him in all things. I’ve lost a spouse through cancer, and have gone through very stressful financial situations. Moving to Canada was a life changing event, but being a single parent was even more challenging. In all these, He taught me:
“Be still, and know that I am God. The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.
God has always provided what our family needed, in His most perfect timing. I believe that God lays down stepping stones in front of me everyday, that help me through the challenges of not only discovering my universal purposes, but also discerning my unique purposes in this life. I am learning to connect my To-Do lists, my passions, and God’s purpose for my life: I may not always understand, but no experience is wasted.
I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, reading, writing, painting and so many other things, most of all, I love to challenge myself with learning new things.
