This month we would like to introduce you to our Office Manager, Willetta Les. We have been blessed to have Willetta on the Denbow team for over twelve years! To celebrate her 10 year employment at Denbow, we helped her achieve her dream of traveling around Europe early this fall.
Willetta started at Denbow fresh out of the University-College of Fraser Valley after completing a Business Administration Diploma. Her first role was receptionist. Through time and experience she has worked her way to her current role of Office Manager.
We have seen Willetta challenge herself to take on many more roles over the years. She is self-taught in so many areas here at Denbow and learns from others around her. Because of her keenness to learn, she will often come across as incredibly knowledgeable in the field of all things environmental; even though she has no schooling in it. J Willetta will never say she ‘can’t’ do something until she has at least given it a try.
Willetta’s passion is anything that requires creativity. Her favorite tasks are creating brochures, website material, and all other marketing that requires design work. Because she loves creating things, Willetta and her sister, Leanne started their own business ‘Sister Made’ in which they create canvas’s, photo cards and many other items theysell online and at a variety of craft fairs. This keeps them very busy and they love it. You can read more about them here: Sister Made
She is also called ‘Auntie Willy’ by her 4 nieces and takes this job seriously. Willetta is appreciated by all her co-workers, friends and family for her generosity and being able to be counted on to help out in any way possible. If there is ever a need, Willetta is one of the first people you can rely on to be there with a meal, kind words or a very nice hand-crafted card.
We look forward to many more years of working with Willetta. Who else will keep us inspired to dream about traveling around the world?
Last Saturday, we had a wonderful time at Denbow’s annual Family Christmas Breakfast. Employees, spouses and kids all enjoyed a delicious breakfast at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn, as well as fun games & gifts!
We also took the opportunity to take a team photo – both with Denbow staff, as well as with all the families. Aren’t we a great looking bunch?!
