With Dean Midyette taking over as publisher of both newspapers and Angela Krebs moving into a new role selling our magazines and special publications exclusively, Amanda Nason is joining our team as the new newspaper advertising sales representative. Please welcome Amanda when she drops by to introduce herself.

Amanda moved to Radium Hot Springs from New Brunswick in August 2013 with her now-husband.

Since her very first day here, she gained some wonderful friendships anbd married her husband in August 2014 (they have three grown children all living on the West Coast).

Amanda is very pleased to call the Columbia Valley home and looks forward to living and working here. She enjoys the breathtaking scenery and friendly, accepting small-town atmosphere.

Amanda brings many years of experience with her to The Valley Echo and The Pioneer.

From 2001 to 2005, she worked  for The Brunswick News as a Sales and Account Manager.

In 2006, she moved into the role of Sales Manager for a telecommunications company,which she held until 2009 when she made the switch to real estate and financial management.

Strategic planning is one of her strongest attributes. She looks forward to lending her extensive expertise to her clients.
