|Info||No stranger to hard work and dedication, Katrine Conroy has been successful in both community and career endeavors. Katrine has enjoyed successful careers as one of B.C.'s first female Steam Engineers, as an Early Childhood Educator and Administrator, and as a small business person. |
In 1979, Katrine left her position as a Steam Engineer with Celgar Pulp and became an Early Childhood Educator. Her drive to excel has resulted in her current position as Executive Director of Kootenay Family Place. In this capacity, Katrine has contributed to its accountability and thriving expansion from two programs to sixteen, with over fifty employees and a multi-million dollar budget.
With her husband Ed, Katrine lives in Pass Creek where together they run a successful ranch breeding prize winning Polled Hereford cattle. Their cattle is sold across B.C. and Western Canada.
Katrine has made a lifelong commitment to serving our area both locally and provincially. She has volunteered her time as Treasurer of the Regional District of Central Kootenay Community Futures Board, as a Board member of the Castlegar and District United Way and as Chair of the Provincial Child Care Inform Advisory Committee.
Katrine's extensive community involvement coupled with her successful career have prepared her for a platform based on listening to the issues, bringing people together and collectively creating common sense solutions.
