The Harbour City’s visitor centres have a new leader at the helm.

Kara Walsh joined the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation’s Tourism Nanaimo team as visitor centre coordinator, leading tourism staff operating out of the Port of Nanaimo Centre and the temporary kiosk at the Northfield Road rest area at the Nanaimo Parkway, which will be replaced by a permanent office this summer.

Walsh studied tourism at Vancouver Island University and spent the last four years with Tourism Vancouver Island.

Tourism Nanaimo operates the visitor centres in partnership with Tourism British Columbia.
