City of Port Alberni: Deanna Shanley - City council

  • Nov. 7, 2014 12:00 p.m.

I am proud to call Port Alberni home since 2007. I was raised in Alberta, born in Saskatchewan. We moved to Port Alberni to live a lifestyle that everyone should have the good fortune to enjoy: affordable living, fresh air, access to lakes, ocean, mountains and some of the most amazing hiking trails I have ever seen.

I have extensive experience in program and people management. I can creatively problem solve, advise, and build strong working relationships. Volunteering and fundraising are  passions; I have volunteered with the ALS Society of Alberta, Canadian Cancer Society, Alberni Valley Hospice Society and the Bread of Life Society.

I currently hold a seat on the board of directors of the Bread of Life Society. I am deeply committed to making a difference in our community.

I work for an organization that has been proudly providing health care to our community for the past 19 years.  As administrator with Rehabilitation in Motion-CBI Health Group, I was able to organize and sustain the operations to achieve the most successful year to date. I have the ability to organize groups of people to build on ideas and accomplish an array of complex projects.

I believe I have an invaluable ability to function as a leader, but more importantly, as a motivated, dedicated member of a team – your city council.

I am approachable, professional and committed to fostering constructive, unified working relationships. I have a determined work ethic, the ability to develop and support those around me, and I am poised to bring new energy to city council as an elected councillor.
