?Meet the Business Community?

Claudette is a wonderful mom and wife. She and her husband David were married 11 years ago in Campbell River, B.C. Dave works as an electrician for Duke Energy, and Claudette works with Cascade Realty. They have two children; Matthew 10 years old, and Michaela six; plus, two Shitzu dogs Sam and Sammy. They moved here three years ago from Chetwynd.

Her favorite thing about Tumbler Ridge is the feeling that she lives at a retreat all year long. Claudette hopes to see the community excel in tourism, as well as commercial and industrial growth. She is very interested in the upcoming election, and believes that it is going to be a critical decision for Tumbler Ridge.

Claudette gives back to the community whenever she can. Recently she has donated a printer/fax machine to the preschool, and she donates to Grizfest every year. She wishes that she could be more involved with sports and organizations, but work and home keep her a busy person.

Claudette started as a realtor in the basement of her home, over two years ago. Now she is located downtown, and says ?I love my job because I get to make people happy!?
