New Leadership Working for You
Raised in Val Caron, Ontario, Carolyn studied Accounting and Languages at Laurentian University. She continued language studies at Concordia University in Montreal and volunteered with a local French church to immerse in the culture. In 1989, she started working at Maimonides Hospital in the Human Resources and Payroll Department. This is where she met her husband, Jim.
Their romance only blossomed into marriage when she moved to North Vancouver in 1994. Their search for a home in 1997 led them to Port Coquitlam, where they’ve raised 2 sons (Mack, Liam) and their daughter, Victoria.
The day after their honeymoon, Carolyn got a call to work for Fraserhealth and has been with them in various roles ever since. In her 23 years, she has seen the amalgamation of health organizations and facilities, healthcare is forever changing.
Her current role as Advisor in the Integrated Protection Services has her overseeing the processes and procedures for the Photo ID and access control systems for all the health organizations in the lower mainland. Where there once was a separation of the department into the 4 organizations, she has been integral in the change management that consolidated and centralized the departments into one. Her passion and dedication to find ways to streamline, improve efficiencies, reduce waste and save tax dollars has provided opportunities for her to advance within the organization.
Fun fact: Carolyn has enjoyed singing for various fundraisers, retirement homes and finding ways to support the local music scene by hosting open mics and artist showcases since 2005. She has also recorded a CD.
