Meet Your Board

Shirlee Jeyes

I have been a co-owner in Caravans since 1997. Initially, I was a summer resident living in an RV on Site 133. Now I enjoy the year-round experience that a four-season Park Model offers. I have always referred to Caravans West as my happy place. I love this park and have made many family memories here.
My work experience is varied and includes twenty years as a Teacher and Principal at schools in the Nass Valley and later Clinton and Cache Creek. Prior to that I was employed as a Laboratory Assistant and a Cardiology Technologist.
My husband Jack and I also have a home in Ashcroft where we spend roughly half of our winter. Between us, we have 6 children and several grandchildren, and one great grandchild.
I have served on the Caravans Board of Directors since 2016. During this time, I have taken an active role as Secretary, Vice President, and as Board Liaison to the Policy Committee. Currently, I serve as President and Liaison to the Playground Committee.

Debra Clare

I have been a Co-owner for 16 years and lived here permanently for the last 3 years. I retired as a RN of 40 years and participated in contributing to change and solutions. I strive to be respectful of the varying opinions of Co-owners recognizing a need for a transparent decision-making process from the Board of Directors. I have been a member and Board Liaison of the Policy Committee, as well as the Long Term Planning Committee Board Liaison, and currently the Treasurer.

Alan Goard

I was born in Edmonton, seasoned with 4 years in Prince Rupert, 8 years in Winnipeg and then back to Edmonton. I have had wonderfully varied life experiences – long hauled on the Alaska Highway in the mid 50’s, educated at Oregon and Washington Universities and had a variety of Executive positions and contracts over thirty years in the Health and Social Service sectors. This was followed by ten years of owning and operating two fitness and two food service franchises in the Lower Mainland, at which time my wife and I retired. It seems like camping and boating have been part of our lives forever. We have driven all over the USA and Canada and sailed the West Coast for years. However, after a mediocre trip out in our motorhome three years ago we concluded that the time had come to stop driving a big rig. We sold the motorhome and then purchased in Caravan’s West which is very close to my sister’s cabin. Years ago we once co-owned a small “boat access only’ lot north of Sicamous. The Shuswap has always been one of our favorite places. I submitted my name to become a Caravan’s West Board member in the hope that, based on my experiences in both the profit and not for profit sectors (and of course life in general), I can make a contribution to the Governance of the Park.

Gloria McNabb

I have lived in the Park since 2004, and have served on the Board of Directors collectively for a total of 14 years.
I’ve also been a member of the Policy Committee to help clarify and/or purge some of the rules in the Park. We are hoping to make it easier for Co-owners to understand the rules and to understand why we need rules.
This Park has been my full time home for over 17 years and it is my favourite place to be. I love it here and am determined to keep it as precious as it is, and to help it live up to the reputation that has so many flocking to buy in here.
