Genevieve Poirier

Program Director

Genevieve believes that the talents the staff bring to the centre alongside the pride they feel working for the organization, help her to maintain her positive attitude – at work and at home. This is also what has kept her in role at the Friendship Centre since 1998, where she joined the team as a receptionist.

As Program Director, her character goes a long way in helping her carry out her role at the forefront of the Friendship Centre. Her ability to connect with others on a compassionate level is what makes her so great at her job and just as valuable around the office.

Genevieve is a loving mother of three. Her strong influence has inspired her children to also play a big role within the community of Smithers.
