Linda moved to Powell River in 2018, leaving the bustle of Ontario for a more nature-filled life on the Sunshine Coast. As a former program manager in social services and marketing professional in educational publishing, she discovered a new passion working with volunteers when she took over coordinating the qathet international film festival in 2019. It has been such a rewarding way to get to know, and contribute to, her new community. Now, as someone who grew up playing classical piano and attending ballets and the symphony, she's thrilled to join the team at PRISMA!
Melanie is a passionate and seasoned events and non profit professional. Having planned many events from weddings and corporate events, to large galas and conferences, she is looking forward to adding Festival to her list. Born and raised in Toronto, her love for events led her to live in various cities throughout Canada and New Zealand and finally settling in the magical town of Powell River. When she isn't planning and organizing you can find her on her paddle board, whipping up a new recipe, or hiking with her 2 dogs.
