Roberta Bishop

Roberta has an eclectic list of tasks and responsibilities and things that keep her busy. A lot has to do with the physicality of the Centre: overseeing technical infrastructure systems including computers, printers, mobile devices, phones, internet connectivity; liaising with vendors and suppliers, including the landlord around building issues and parking spaces; generally ensuring smooth operations of the Rainbow Resource Centre.

Roberta has a B.A., B.Ed., P.B.C.E. She started with Rainbow Resource Centre early in the new century providing technical support and came on staff in 2013. An educator by background, having taught pre-school to post-secondary in three provinces, she also has a couple of decades business experience in both the private and public sectors. An assortment of jobs and lifetime career stepping stones have earned her natural silver hair highlights. With strong Maritime roots, and years overseas, she is proud to call Manitoba home.

An active community volunteer, she is currently contributing her skills to the International Children’s Festival (a.k.a. Kids Fest), Vision Quest Conferences, TREC (Translating Research in Elder Care) VOICES, the Vestry at St. Luke’s Church, and Over the Rainbow at Rainbow Resource Centre.

Both professionally and personally, Roberta finds it truly a joy to come to work each day, and feels privileged to be working with an incredible team of folx within an amazing community.
