Clarisse Halbert

I joined the finance team at Kwadacha Nation on August 2021 as Director of Finance. I oversee all areas of finance and provide financial information for senior management and government agencies. Prior to becoming the Director of Finance, I worked as an auditor at an accounting firm from 2015 to 2021.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting and Finance from the University of Northern British Columbia and am a Chartered Professional Accountant, hoping to obtain my Certified Aboriginal Financial Management designation.

I serve as a Treasurer for the Exploration Place Board of Directors and volunteer as an Academic Coach with the UNBC JDC West business club.

I love hiking, camping, and cross-country skiing with my 120lb Husky/Pyrenees dog, Boomer. Pizza and Nachos are my favourite foods and I love playing boardgames with my friends like Gloomhaven, Codenames, and Dungeons and Dragons.

Rox-Anne Piere

My name is Rox-Anne Pierre. I was hired on as a Finance Coordinator for Kwadacha Nation at the beginning of this January. I’ve had Darlene train me on how to do the payroll & everything else that goes along with it!

I am a Gitksan aboriginal of the Wolf clan reigning from Kispiox, B.C. My husband & I moved to Prince George in 2013 from Kamloops, B.C after I attended a 2 year accounting program at Thompson Rivers University.

I’ve worked for a non-profit aboriginal organization the past 6 years here in Prince George.

I’m very happy & grateful to be a part of the Kwadacha Nation Finance team. Thank you for the opportunity! I look forward to meeting all of you and getting to see Fort Ware personally.
