New Faces Behind the Desk

A warm Watershed welcome to Jordan and Kristal

If you've popped into the Village Office recently you may have noticed a couple of unfamiliar faces.

Jordan Szmidt has been behind the desk since January, and is originally from a small town in England. She's lived in Canada for a year, and says she is thoroughly enjoying her new life here. We understand she's even becoming a fan of hockey, poutine and maple syrup.

With a background in the aerospace and risk management sector, Jordan has also got experience in customer service and process improvement.

Kristal Kenna tells The Watershed that she's very excited to be joining the village, especially as she grew up on the North Shore, and has already met a number of friendly faces in her first few days here.

Kristal's background is in customer service, event planning and administration. She has 25 years of experience working on Grouse Mountain as everything from a ski instructor to corporate event planner. Kristal lives in Squamish with her two dogs, and enjoys all things dog-related, along with skiing and mountain biking.

The wide range of skills brought by Jordan and Kristal will be put to good use. Be sure to drop by the office to offer a warm hello to these two welcome new additions to Village staff.
