Meet the Staff
Shaleene Allard - GTBVC Manager
Shaleene is an avid adventurer and can generally be found in the Canadian Rockies in her time off. She is a full-time student pursuing a degree in Human Resources and Labour Relations through Athabasca University, and is also a recently certified Red Cross First Aid & CPR Instructor.
Shaleene manages the office and oversees the majority of the logistics of the club, including but not limited to accounts payable / accounts receivable, administration, payroll, and staffing. This is her second year with the club, and second year in her role. Unfortunately she will not be returning next season as she is set to move out east in the fall.
Paige Billings - Club Coordinator
Paige is a lover of the great outdoors. When she is not at the club, she can likely be found wandering (or biking) through the river valley trails, or reading a book. She is a part time student at MacEwan, with a goal of starting nursing school this upcoming winter term.
Paige will serve as Shaleene’s left-hand lady as the Club Coordinator, and will be all the club on a full-time basis all season long! She will be training throughout the summer to eventually take on Shaleene’s role by summer’s end and hopefully will continue in that role next season. This is Paige’s first year with the club, so please give her a warm welcome!
