Verna joined Hugh & McKinnon in January 2018 after a a 20 year career as the Constituency Assistant to Gordon Hogg, the MLA for Surrey-White Rock. Working in the community office provided her the opportunity to work alongside various levels of government, not for profits, community groups and people living and working on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Previous to that, she was the owner/operator of a successful landscaping maintenance company servicing many residential and commercial strata corporations. As a strong believer in 'giving back' to the community, Verna spent many years coaching baseball and managing minor hockey teams. She has also volunteered for many non-profits and has been a board member of KidSport Surrey-White Rock since its inception in 2012. Verna enjoys working with people and managing projects in a fast paced environment. With her cheerful disposition and sense of humour, she is a great addition to the Hugh & McKinnon team.
