Alina joined GOERT in 2016 as the Bring Back the Bluebirds Project Coordinator. Alina is a researcher, ecologist, and mom to two spirited young girls. She can be found at her desk (rarely) or around southern Vancouver Island cycling and hiking with her girls (mostly). Given her love of Garry Oaks, she considers herself lucky to not only a part of GOERT, but also that her house is within a Garry Oak ecosystem.
Alina comes from a population ecology and community ecology background, and works in research, and science communications. Alina is a graduate of the University of Alberta's Biology program and is currently working on a Masters of Professional Communications through Royal Roads University. She is interested in rare species stewardship, ecological restoration, conservation, and sharing her love of ecology with her daughters and local school children.
Jeanne is our part-time / on contract bookkeeper experienced with charitable organizations. She ensures the invoices are properly authorized and paid, grant funding is tracked according to agreements, and many of GOERT’s administrative and reporting tasks are completed accurately and on time. Jeanne has a passion for travel, and as such, should you have an urgent financial matter please contact our Treasurer and any other board member.
