Sharron Young



Sharron has always strived to work with First Nations people which directed her degree at UBC. She worked for a short time at Sto:lo Nation in the Halq’eméylem and taxation department and then pursued her career here, in her community of Skawahlook First Nation, where she has been working for 11 years. Sharron has worked mainly in administration and finances throughout her career. She loves learning about the history of her community, watching it grow and has been very privileged to work with Skawahlook members. Sharron is currently sitting on the Sto:lo Nation Operational Board of Directors which has been a fantastic learning experience.

Most importantly she would like to recognize her greatest blessing and accomplishment, her family. After being married for 13 years to her high school sweetheart and having 2 girls, Sharron believes the majority of her experience has come from them.
