Stephanie and Chris

We feel so fortunate to have found West Wind Harbour Cohousing especially as we have been lifelong renters and this is our first home purchase!  We were immediately captivated by the cohousing ethos and the welcoming, diverse and generous WWH community.  And we are still amazed by the incredible location and view!!

Chris is an Administrator for a research facility and Stephanie is a Public Librarian. Our two grown children really enjoy coming to Sooke for rest and relaxation. Our family also spends as much time as possible at our cabin on Mudge Island.  Stephanie’s passions include cooking, baking bread, beach walks and all textile crafts especially those that involve wool.  Chris is a devoted sports fan and always has many projects on the go.

We have really enjoyed the process of helping to build our community.  Contributing to some of the many teams that ensure that WWH runs smoothly has been very rewarding.

Both of us have really benefitted from the strengths, intelligence and skills of our community members.  Their enthusiasm, energy and kindness is very inspiring and makes consensus decision-making and working on cohousing projects very gratifying!
