Announcement for Northwest Resource Development

We are thrilled to announce that Lorna Bihori is now the Resource Development Officer for the Northwest region of Northern BC!

Lorna Bihori joined the United Way of Northern BC on April 1, 2019, in the position of Resource Development Officer – North Central and has been an incredible representative for UWNBC. Lorna’s role in the North Central area includes communities south and west of Prince George. Now with the addition of the Northwest region to her portfolio, she will continue covering all the way to the west-coast and northern borders of the Northern BC region. Lorna can be reached at 250-561-1040 or via email at lornab@unitedwaynbc.ca.

A little bit about Lorna…

Born in Smithers, brought up in Granisle, and predominantly vacationed in the Northwest region of BC, she always wanted to work and serve the communities in the Northwest. Her urge to change lives by connecting resources to the needs has enabled many nonprofit organizations to get the support they need and continue running the critical programs in the local communities.

Lorna understands the challenges that are being faced in Northern BC due to the rural and remote nature of the large majority of communities. With Lorna’s history and passion for the Northwest region, and her proven ability to connect with local community partners through providing temporary coverage in this sub-region for the past year, it was an obvious fit for Lorna to formally step in to the role.

Lorna is married with 2 children, the youngest one studying at University. She has a diverse experience that includes 3 years in the Mining Industry, 5 years in the Transportation Industry, and 13 years in a Financial Institution where she became involved with the United Way of Northern BC to help those in need through Day of Caring projects and Employee Giving Campaigns. She has always been passionate about the work that United Way does to support the most vulnerable segment of the population and in her tenure of just over a year with United Way, she has helped bring an extraordinary change in the communities she has served.

We are delighted to make it “official” and have Lorna as our Resource Development Officer – North Central/Northwest!
