I moved to Victoria with my husband, Stephen Pienaar, in the summer of 2018 from North Vancouver. I was in semi-retirement, having worked part-time for two years as a fundraiser for the Museum of Vancouver and the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast in Art in Vancouver. Previously I had a 30+year career in corporate communications – media and public relations, sponsorships, donations, and event management. The most recent full-time work was with BMO Financial Group.
Moving to Victoria was made easy when my twin sister, Leslie Grant (also a newcomer) arrived in Victoria with her husband in 2017 from New Brunswick. Originally, over 30 years ago, from Regina, we were finally back together! I’ve been able to follow some passions such as Bridge, painting, golfing, gardening, and walking. New past-times include tennis and e-biking.
