Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation has hired a new Executive Director.
Lisa Westermark will replace Sue Beaudry, who is retiring as Director of Development after 10 years with the Foundation.
Foundation President Elise Allan says Westermark comes with more than 25 years of experience making a difference in the lives of British Columbians, serving in senior leadership and executive positions for community, provincial and national organizations.
“We are looking forward to Lisa’s leadership and expertise in strategic planning, board governance, and fundraising to build upon our achievements and ensure the continued success of upcoming fundraising projects that will improve the health and well-being of residents in the North Okanagan.`
Allan also has praise for Sue Beaudry.
“We are grateful for the tremendous dedication and leadership that Sue has provided to the Foundation over the past decade. We wish her a wonderful retirement.”
Annually, the Foundation raises between $1.5 and $2 million, supporting more than 50 areas of unfunded health care needs in the region.
