Lisa

Manager

My family and I moved from Halifax, NS to Squamish about 2 1/2 years ago. This town has been more than welcoming and we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. My daughter Sydney has made many new friends in Squamish and can’t wait for the summer to go swimming at the lakes again. I am proud to say my younger daughter Robyn was born in Squamish. Our family is originally from Germany and we try to visit once a year. However, travelling around British Columbia has been an incredible experience far. 

I am excited to be working with young Squamish families by proving out of school care.

Karen

Supervisor 

Karen began serving as the ordained minister of Squamish United Church in June of 2009. In meeting the people of this congregation Karen was drawn to the openness, warmth and vision of the church community. The mission of Squamish United Church is “to be an inclusive community serving God’s world.” This mission fits well with who Karen is as minister and child of God. As a person with a background in youth ministry, social work, and counselling Karen believes the church is called to share God’s love, grace and justice with all. Karen sees this same desire within the hearts of many here at Squamish United.
