Port Alberni, BC
Tricia lives in Port Alberni, BC, where she was born and raised. She earned her Bachelor of Business Administration from Vancouver Island University in 2013. Her Chartered Professional Accountant designation was in 2015, and she is currently working on completing her Local Government Administration Certificate. Tricia has spent four years in public accounting and seven years in municipal finance and asset management before shifting gears and joining Uchucklesaht Tribe Government as Funding Specialist in 2022. She finds a huge sense of reward in working with local First Nations and seeing her efforts providing direct benefit to the Uchucklesaht community. Early in life, she learned to appreciate being surrounded by nature and spends her summers camping in the woods all over Vancouver Island. Her goals are to incorporate fiscal, social, and environmental responsibility in not only the Uchucklesaht community but all communities in the region, and to do her best to reduce climate change and create a brighter future for her son and younger generations. She is looking forward to seeing the direct benefits of Indigenous Clean Energy and a reduction in diesel power in the Uchucklesaht territory.
