"Education opens up magnificent opportunities to challenge yourself, create success and make the world your oyster."
After a long, rewarding career in the field of financial management, Colleen Sawyer has returned to Port Alberni to retire and to give back to her home community. Colleen grew up with seven siblings and graduated from Alberni District Secondary School. She started her career at the local Credit Union, moving to the Mainland, Ontario and back to Vancouver Island throughout her career. She worked in various roles finding great success and passion for leadership along the way. Highlights included working on the 2009 World Under 17 Hockey Challenge and managing RBC’s temporary branch at the Main Press Centre for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Travel is a large part of Colleen’s life and she looks forward to continuing to explore the world and to volunteering in her community.
