Timbrell

Secretary

Haydai, my name is RoseAnne Timbrell, I am the granddaughter of Enock and Josephine Joseph, and come from the Tl'az'ten Nation. The local Katize, Kwatelen and Sto:lo Peoples refer to me as the Keeper of the Fish, as the salmon swim from the Coast Salish Sea to where my people live Stuart Lake, BC. I am a mother of two grown boys, grandmother of three grandsons and aunty to 12 young adults. I am very proud of Fraser River Indigenous Society and the growth it has had, and will continue to do, in the coming years. I currently  have a private practice as registered clinical counsellor here in Maple Ridge and am a professor at the University of Fraser Valley in Abbotsford. I look forward to seeing you in community. Mussi, RoseAnne
