Joni is currently our Assistant Food & Beverage Manager and Events Manager, however she has had a variety of roles within the department since she started working here while attending the University of BC acquiring her Bachelor of Education.  Joni has her WSET Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits and enjoys wine and wine education (aka ‘market research’). When not working she can be found spending quality time with family and friends and playing the occasional round of golf (although she would like to play more). Joni looks forward to traveling again post COVID and being a part of the Food & Beverage team once again for 2022!
