Mieke Coppes moved to Bowness in 2020 and couldn’t wait to join the local community association. She currently works as a consultant with a focus on Indigenous-Government relations and circumpolar issues. Mieke is excited about building connections and events for Bowness. She believes that building community begins with getting to know each other. She can be found wandering around the community (and the mountains) with her Bernedoodle Oreo.
