On behalf of the Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Care Association, Susan MacNeill is welcomed to the position of Executive Secretary.
Susan also enjoys an interactive working environment with challenges and has a committed desire to make a difference in our community.For the past 15 years, Susan has been employed in the hospital industry, as a long term care aide, recreation assistant, mental health worker and nursing unit clerk.
Influenced throughout her early years by family members, Susan's path to work with seniors started when she was very young. In 1998 Susan and a colleague started the Quesnel Chapter of Volunteer Grandparents Society of B.C. Also as a pilot project, Susan and the same colleague in 2004 started the Seniors Advocacy Service.
She replaces Judy Monych who is retiring effective May 14. Judy has been with the association for the past 14 years, as both a volunteer and, more recently, the executive secretary.
We wish Judy all the best in her retirement.
