Becky grew up in a small Metis commercial fishing community on Lake Winnipeg and chose to make Northern Manitoba her home five years ago. Becky understands the importance of community and the power of rural and northern people. Early in her career as a chamber of commerce manager, Becky discovered a passion for supporting entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration.
This led to a career with Community Futures and eventually, the position of manager for Community Futures Greenstone, based in Flin Flon. Becky was instrumental in founding the Infusion Entrepreneurship Conference, which recently won a Provincial Community Futures Innovation and Excellence Award. Under her direction, Greenstone also launched the BizKidz Program to develop entrepreneurial skills and creative thinking in youth. Becky sits on the Board of Directors for Communities Economic Development Fund and Governing Council for University College of the North. She is also involved with the Flin Flon & District Chamber of Commerce, Northern Manitoba Tourism Advisory Committee, and the Rotary Club of Flin Flon. Along with husband and their two children, Becky shares an enthusiasm for the outdoors, and you can often find her four-wheel quadding or fishing. Becky sees a north that is rich in resources, experience, and opportunities, and she believes its greatest asset is its people.
