Ramona is in her third term as the Regional District of Central Kootenay Director for Electoral Area E, which surrounds the City of Nelson on three sides and is home to 3,800 people. As a local official, she has worked with staff to review development applications and to lead community planning. Together with other board members whose electoral area borders Kootenay Lake, she has instigated the Kootenay Lake Partnership and the Kootenay Lake Conservation Program.

Ramona has several years of experience writing and reviewing grant applications, most recently as a member of the Vancouver Foundation’s Environment Grant Advisory Committee. She has also worked as a senior manager and volunteered in community services, local forestry, food systems and watershed protection.

Outside of work, Ramona enjoys gardening, yoga, singing and spending time with her friends and family. Welcome, Ramona!


The Foundation is directed by a board of seven members. The British Columbia Real Estate Association, the Real Estate Council of British Columbia, and the Real Estate Institute of British Columbia each appoint one member. The BC Minister of Finance appoints three members, and the Union of BC Municipalities appoints one member.
