GETTING TO KNOW US
I have always been passionate about trying to make a difference in my community and my Industry!
It must be in the ‘genes’, as they say. Both my dad and my uncle were proud Saskatchewan grain growers, farming together on the farm that their dad homesteaded in 1904. They worked long hours in their business, but always found time to support their community and to represent the farming industry locally, provincially and nationally.
Marketing and Sales in the Residential Homebuilding Industry has been my life for over 25 years and I still love it! I have had Senior Manager/Director roles for several well-known Production Builders in Lower Mainland and experienced many different types of housing options. For the last 10 years I have been the Owner/Principal of Harrison Marketing Resources Ltd.
I received my UBC Marketing and Sales Management Diploma in 2002 and a BScHEc with an Interior Design Major, from University of Saskatchewan in 1981.
The ‘learning’ never ends, and I continue to seek out new ideas and understanding as the marketing of homes and branding changes.
Volunteer and Association Work
I was introduced to the Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Greater Vancouver in 1991. I have been a dedicated member ever since . From being welcomed into this association as a newcomer, to serving on committees helping where I could, to leadership positions locally, provincially and nationally. I have devoted many hours to this Association but have always got much more back in friendships, common goals and business connections.
