The Team

East Village

Meet the HNBIA Team

We are small, but we are mighty! Meet our team down below.

Patricia Barnes

Executive Director

Meet Patricia!

She’s been the Executive Director of our neighbourhood BIA since 2001! That’s right she’s the first ED to be hired for our BIA 19 years ago.

Patricia is very involved in community as she sits on several Boards including the Vancouver Police Board, Living in Community, LOCO BC, BIABC, and many more.

Most mornings you can catch her filling up her mug at The Laughing Bean Coffee Co. And some days you can find her enjoying an avocado benny from Roundel Cafe.

Ashley Schultheiss

Marketing Coordinator

Say hi to Ashley!

This ray of sunshine started with us two years ago as an intern through SFU’s Co-op program and now she’s our Marketing Coordinator.

She’s been a great addition to our team and so much fun to work with. In the past you might have seen her slinging breakfast when she worked at Yolks before she came to the BIA family.

During the day, you can often find Ashley sipping from her Laughing Bean mug. But after five, catch her at Jackalope’s for a cheeky pint.
