Thought it was time to do a spotlight on the special projects girl! When you love what you do and do what you love that's a sign of a successful career. It's how Joanne Atkins feels about her position as Executive Assistant with Can accord Genuity Wealth Management in Uptown Waterloo. Joanne began her career in the investment industry over 40 years ago and is still passionate about her work and commitment to service. She thrives on helping others and sharing her positive energy with clients, colleagues, friends and family. Wherever she goes fun is following close behind- her attitude and spirit is contagious. Joanne enjoys bringing people together and creating a culture where people feel connected to one another.
Joanne learned early in life the value of hard work and responsibility through her family's business, Upshall's Garage on Bell Island; an experience she feels has shaped her entrepreneurial spirit. These are values both Joanne and her husband, Paul have passed on to their two sons, Mitchel and Justin, who also have their own businesses. Joanne is grateful for the many insightful and inspiring women she has met through the KWBWA over the past 30 years. She believes the purpose of the association is not about what you can get, but rather about what you can give.
Joanne continues to serve on the board and help create opportunities to highlight these incredible women in our community.

We all have had to adjust to changes in our personal and professional lives. As a group, we've embraced Zoom meetings, focussed on learning more about our members through social media profiles, and had a couple outdoor events.
Kendra Allen was a fabulous president who confidently led our group through the highs and lows of 2019-2020. She helped secure some great speakers, oversaw venue changes due to renovations and helped spearhead our online meetings.
As long standing member, Nancy Koebel said: "Kendra you did an awesome job of pivoting when everything changed due to covid."
Member Kristin Moore was asked to create a piece of jewelry as a thank you gift for our president. She created a cuff bracelet that she can see it when typing on the computer and read its message: #empowered. This is the heart of our group: supporting and cheering on our members as we grow and navigate change.
Thank you to all of the women on our Executive from 2019-2020.
