Beth Kish - Executive Director
Beth Kish has recently accepted the position of Executive Director for the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society. She comes with several years of experience having been the Executive Director for the Surrey Hospice Society and the Foothills Country Hospice Society in Southern Alberta. Having worked and volunteered for several not for profit organizations, Beth has established herself in the community personally, politically, and through the successful evolution of her career. Working in support of Hospice care has been the most challenging and most rewarding of Beth’s work and represents a hybrid of her experience and passion.  Atop her resume though, is the most important role of Beth’s life, which is her role as a mother to her two wonderful children; Wendy and Grant.

Tara FieldRegistered Clinical Counsellor
Tara is a Registered Clinical Counsellor who joined our team in 2013.  She was originally involved with hospice as a practicum student; then continuing as a volunteer and relief counsellor while working in private practice.  Bereavement and End-of-Life Counselling is more of a calling than a career choice for Tara; she knew early on in her career that supporting palliative clients and their loved ones would become her life's work.  As an advocate for play therapy, Tara enjoys spending time with her two English Cocker Spaniels.
