Board of Director Candidate - Baukje Edamura


 

I hold a degree in Software Engineering.  I spent several years working as a software designer, most recently at Intel.  I was in the process of making a career switch to project management when my son was born.  I made the difficult decision to leave my career to focus on raising my kids.

I have spent years volunteering for my children.  At the school, I have filled many roles including:

  • class parent
  • kindergarten library assistant
  • track-and-field helper for intermediate grades
  • run-club helper for primary grades

Both my kids play hockey.  My son is entering second year Bantam with Tbirds while my daughter is a Peewee with Vancouver Angels girl's hockey.  My son has played some rep but both kids are now primarily interested in playing recreational.  I have spent many years supporting their hockey and have taken on the following roles:

  • HCSP
  • team manager
  • division manager

Besides hockey, my kids also play baseball and softball.  I have supported these sports as well.  I have managed a couple of baseball teams and am currently in the process of organizing a 14-team softball tournament.

I have not completely lost myself in my children's activities and have continued to pursue my own interests.  I have become an avid gardener and am a member of the Dunbar Garden Club.  I have volunteered with the club in various roles including 1 year as club vice-president and 2 years as club president.  I am an avid marathon runner.  I have run 5 marathons (including the Boston marathon) and numerous half-marathons.
