Throughout her 35 year Naval career, Louise not only provided exceptional support to the Canadian Forces, she also consistently championed issues related to the quality of work life. She looks forward to bringing the same organizational, analytical and problem-solving skills and focus on people to the Perley Health Boardroom.
Louise was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 1974, on completion of her Bachelor of Arts Degree, Louise began her military career as a Logistics Officer. Her career was one of increasingly challenging logistics opportunities. Of particular note were her tours as the Formation Logistics Officer/N4 at Maritime Forces (Atlantic) where she was responsible for the effective support and materiel readiness of Canada’s East Coast Navy and as Commander, Canadian Materiel Support Group, where she was responsible for the provision of operational level support to Operations, including Command of all the Supply and Ammunition Depots of the Canadian Forces. Her final tour was as a Director General on the Strategic Joint Staff. She retired from the CF in 2010 as a Naval Captain.
Since her retirement from the Canadian Forces, Louise has been the Project Director for a Major Crown Project valued at $400M, volunteered on the Board of the Friends of the Canadian War Museum and kept an eye on two aging parents. She looks forward to being a member of the Board, while also participating on the Audit and Risk Management Committee.
