Director
(1 year term)

My name is Paula Potter. I am 54 years old and I am a Cree-Scottish-Sioux Horsewoman from Mistatim. I have 30 years of lived experience in addiction and 20 years in frontline work – both as a client and peer facilitator. I am now 11 years sober. I sundance and I am a survivor of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. I am a family member of MMIWG2STQ and I work as a cultural liaison. It has been a privilege to work with this awesome organization and the other board members!

I lift my hands in gratitude for the leadership and care of PAFNW.
