Town of Creston - Jen Comer

Jen is serving her second term as a Councillor with the Town of Creston, and previously served as RDCK Alternate Director for Area B from 2014 - 2018. She holds a BA Honours in Geography from the University of Victoria where she focused her studies on local community development, Geographic Information Systems and statistics. Since living in Creston, she’s been involved with Yaqan Nukiy Farms, Creston Valley Farmers’ Market, Fields Forward, Creston Tourism Society and the Creston Valley Economic Action Partnership, among others.

Jen was born and raised in Nelson, and after university, Jen and her husband chose Creston as their home. In 2010 they moved to the Comer family farm, and in 2012 welcomed a daughter into their family. Jen notes that the Creston Valley has been a great place to put down roots, both professionally and personally. Her family loves the endless camping and hiking the Kootenay’s has to offer. During the summer of 2019, she was able to check a big “bucket list” hike off the list by completing the five-day, 65-kilometre historic Earl Grey Pass trail between Argenta and Invermere.

Alternate Director: Jim Elford
