Kaila is the Gaming Manager at Chances Maple Ridge, and began her local involvement in the early 90’s with Ridge Meadows Bingo Operators Society raising funds for charitable groups in both an employee and volunteer capacity. A community resident for 30 years, Kaila was a founding student and eventual graduate of Meadowridge School. With a post-secondary background in payroll & business accounting, she has since held a number of administrative, human resources, and accounting roles within (then) Haney Bingo Plex (now Chances with Great Canadian Gaming) over her 20yr gaming career. In her current role as Gaming Manager at Chances Maple Ridge, Kaila strives to continue building strong community partnerships. Also sitting on the Board of Directors for Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association, she looks forward to further serving her community and interacting with other forward-focused business leaders in the area. She believes that the Chamber, with the positive momentum it has built up over recent years, plays a key role in the future growth and development of Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows.
When not working, Kaila enjoys spending time with her husband, dogs and two young children, competitive running, and exploring local hiking trails. She is proud to now be able to raise her young family within the same community she grew up
