About Me

I have spent the last 30 years working for a variety of not-for-profits in a variety of roles and eventually rose through the ranks to a role of Executive Director. I have served as the ED (or Interim ED) of a variety of organizations including Alberta Camping Association (service industry association for member camps in Alberta), O’Keefe Ranch (Historical Society and Museum in the north Okanagan), Camp Pringle Society (a kids camp on Vancouver Island), Naramata Centre (a retreat centre in the south Okanagan) and most recently the Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society (an environmental organization here in the Kootenays).

In each of them, office administration skills figured large and you can imagine how technology and processes have changed over those years. Thankfully, I am a lifelong learner and in retrospect am very grateful for all the opportunities provided to grow and develop skills and experience.

Today, I am looking forward to being able to use all of these skills to help others in business and not-for-profits spend their own time more efficiently to grow their businesses and organizations.

In my spare time, I am a 4-H leader (trying to grow a new club here in the Slocan Valley), a gardener, herbalist, bird watcher, naturalist, hiker, wife and mom (soon to be an empty nester). I also enjoy letterboxing, a hobby that combines artistic stamp carving with treasure hunts in beautiful, unexplored places. You will learn aspects about all of these things in my monthly newsletter “Reflections from Dragonfly Meadows”.

My business name came about because one summer there was a bumper crop of dragonflies that spent  several weeks around our yard and over my water garden. (I also raise and sell water lilies, LOL!!) Dragonflies over the meadow…. Dragonfly Meadows.

Hello, I’m Gwen and I’m excited to work with you to help you streamline your business and give you time to focus on what matters most to you.
