Stephanie Blier - Volunteer Coordinator Co-Chair

I work as an HR Advisor for the Domtar Kamloops Pulp Mill. I am originally from Montreal, but I am now calling Kamloops my home. From the beginning, Kamloops impressed me with its kindness and generosity. I joined GenNext to meet other young professionals that share the same passions and to give back to this community that gave so much to me when I first arrived.
