I am a member of the Saik’uz First Nation and I sit with the Grouse Clan. My late grand parents are Lazare Peter John and Mary John Sr. CM. My late mother is Bernice Spicer. I have lived off reserve for many years and am glad to be back in my home community. My previous employment was in Witset FN at Kyahwood Forest Products, which was a finger joint mill. While working there, I was able to further my career. Starting in reception and working up to Interim Manager. My wish is that my experience and knowledge working with a First Nation community will be an asset for my home community in the Human Resources Department.
