Kris Okamoto
Executive Assistant

After an injury, Kris left a job that she loved in Community Living, with intentions to retire.

Kris came to SOS BC while helping her sister find volunteer work. She was so impressed with the work that they do and the kind, caring atmosphere of the office that she too started volunteering. When the job of Office Administrator became available, Kris helped out “temporarily”. The “temporarily” has happily not ended.

Why I love my job: “There is no downside. The work allows me to keep helping others. The mission is noble. The village is amazing and I get to work alongside a team who are inclusive and supportive.”
