Resident Spotlight: Carrie Tarasoff

Carrie TThis Resident Spotlight is someone who is always ready to lend a helping hand, along with a smile and kind words.  I don’t know Carrie that well ‘in real life’, but we’ve emailed back and forth over the years for various Buzz and volunteer reasons, and she is definitely one of the people working ‘behind the scenes’ to make Gold River a better place.  Thanks for participating in the Spotlight Carrie! :)

How long have you lived in Gold River? What brought you here?

We moved to Gold River in the summer of 2008. We moved here because my husband, Lawrence, was hired by School District 84. Six years in our current home is the longest we’ve ever lived in one house during our marriage.

What do you do for (paid) work?

I have two part time jobs. I am the Literacy Outreach Coordinator for the Gold River Literacy Society. Our Resource Centre is in the Village Plaza. We offer computer drop in, tutoring, and a wide variety of other programs.

I started in June as the Stopping the Violence/Legal Services Society Outreach Worker for Gold River. The office is across from the Health Clinic. I can help women with relationship conflicts access services and resources to help them. As well, we have legal information available for men and women.

I am also a casual library assistant with the Vancouver Island Regional Library.

Please tell us about any volunteer work you do.

I coordinate Sunday school for Westgate Church. I often help with library book sales, various school and community events, and child care.

Please tell us a bit about your family.


My husband and I have been married for almost 26 years. We have four children: Jordan, age 23; Matthew, age 20; Emma, age 16; and Jacob, age 14. Jordan lives and works in Victoria. Matthew attends Capilano University in North Vancouver. Emma and Jacob live at home and are in grades 11 and 9 at GRSS.

Do you have any pets?


What do you like to do for fun?

I like to read, travel, and spend time with my family.

What do you wish Gold River had that it doesn’t? Is there anything missing for you?

I would like a bakery, although it’s probably better for my health that there isn’t one.

We have lived in many small towns, some bigger and some smaller than Gold River. Gold River actually has far more amenities than a lot of other places.

And just for fun – if you had 1 million dollars to donate to the community in any way you wished – what would you do with the money?

I would finance the GRLS Resource Centre so we wouldn’t have to wonder each year if we are going to receive government funding or not. I would fund school breakfast and lunch programs, as well as make sure the food bank always had enough. Nobody should ever go hungry. I’d also keep the pool and recreation centre open all year.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

The people of Gold River have been very welcoming to our family. We are thankful for the many good things that we have been a part of since moving here.
