Staff Directory

Beth Kish
Executive Director

Beth Kish has recently accepted the position of Executive Director for the Peace Arch Hospice Society. She comes with several years of experience having been the Executive Director for the Surrey Hospice Society and the Foothills Country Hospice Society in Southern Alberta. Having worked and volunteered for several not for profit organizations, Beth has established herself in the community personally, politically, and through the successful evolution of her career. Working in support of Hospice care has been the most challenging and most rewarding of Beth’s work and represents a hybrid of her experience and passion. Atop her resume though, is the most important role of Beth’s life, which is her role as a mother to her two wonderful children; Wendy and Grant.

Tara Field
Registered Clinical Counsellor

Tara is a Registered Clinical Counsellor who joined our team in 2013. She was originally involved with hospice as a practicum student; then continuing as a volunteer and relief counsellor while working in private practice. Bereavement and End-of-Life Counselling is more of a calling than a career choice for Tara; she knew early on in her career that supporting palliative clients and their loved ones would become her life’s work. As an advocate for play therapy, Tara enjoys spending time with her English Cocker Spaniel.

Trevor Josephson
Registered Clinical Counsellor

Trevor is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with an Advanced Diploma in Art Therapy. His belief in the healing power of an individual’s personal imagination and creative spirit is affirmed daily through the work he does with children, youth and adults. Since 2012 he has been honoured to support individuals as they explore and express their innate potential for healing and growth in the caring and nurturing environment provided by the Hospice Society. Trevor’s familiarity with Hospice work emerges from his mother who has volunteered with Hospice for 29 years in the community where he grew up. On weekends and evenings, he can be found happily benefiting from the experience of Play Therapy with his wife and young children.
