HEALING CENTRE MANAGER
My name is Helen Starr and I am the Healing Centre Manager for the Peerless Trout First Nation. I am from Peerless Lake and a PTFN member. I have lived in different cities and communities because of work and I came home a few years ago, to be with my family, relatives and friends.
My work has taken me into different fields such as social work and economic development. Although I have my education and training today, it was not always like this. I had quit school, so I went back to school starting from upgrading to different Universities, Colleges and where I trained to be a Social Worker and a First Nations Manager.
I enjoy working for Peerless Trout First Nation for many reasons, but an important one to me, is I have an attachment to all the community members, and I feel a personal satisfaction knowing that what I do helps everyone and the community as a whole. I won an award last year from PTFN for Outstanding Service and this is something I will cherish. It is a pleasure to serve to the best of my ability and I pray that I continue to do so for a long time to come.
