Jeannette Danks

Peace River

Jeannette has lived in northern Alberta for 35 years and has grown to love the way its residents collaborate to make their communities stronger. Jeannette is a financial advisor with a long history in the banking and finance industry and has held executive positions with the Peace River and District Chamber of Commerce, Peace River Curling Club, and Peace River Child Care Association. In her role with the Peace River Child Care Association, she helped guide the funding and construction phases to replace the daycare building that had been destroyed by a fire in May 2014. In delivering the NADC’s mandate, Jeannette is most interested in social and economic development and looks forward to contributing her experience in finance and her understanding of community action to help pursue social and economic development in the North through a balanced approach that spans industry diversification to equal access to healthcare and education. Jeannette and her spouse Kevin enjoy camping, and participating in community and outdoor activities with their five-year-old son.
