  • Tamara Dabels  | Executive Director

    Alana Seymour  | Marketing & Membership Coordinator

    I come to this position with 10 years of sales experience and hold a marketing and graphic design diploma. My career started as a Graphic Designer at the Edmonton Sun, I quickly gained interest in the sales division; from there I became an Account Executive. Here I was able to help small to large customers grow their business by assisting them with their advertising needs. Following the Edmonton Sun I worked in the Consumer Packaged goods industry for various liquor distributors. This role allowed me to work hands on with independent and chain liquor stores to grow and develop their business.


    Coming from a military family, we moved around a lot but I have been proud to call Fort Saskatchewan my home for 20 years now. My husband Ryan has lived here his whole life, when we had our daughters we knew this was the place where we wanted to raise our family. You can always find us out partaking in the amazing community events throughout the city.

     

     

     

    Rene Holinski | Sales & Events Coordinator

    I moved to Fort Saskatchewan in 2011 from Half Moon Lake, but was born and raised in Calgary Alberta where I grew up living with my parents and sister.

    I am beyond blessed to have three beautiful children, Liam, Myelle and Hudson. For many years I was a stay at home mom and decided it was time for me to make my transition into the workforce. Prior to my position with the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, I worked in sales for a local radio station. While there I discovered my love of relationship building, community advocacy, volunteering and my drive to succeed. My heritage is of Metis descent which carries a “strong ties to the village" mentality.

    I am a member of the executive board for Fort Saskatchewan Women in Business and am a past member of the International Women's Day Committee.

    In my spare time you'll catch me cheering on the sidelines at the hockey rink, at the park or rushing through the grocery store. I enjoy reading anything and everything, spinning until my heart is content, indulging in podcasts and enjoying every single thing this life has to offer me!
