Elizabeth Doerksen


Live theatre has always been a favourite of Elizabeth's.  Even in some remote little town on vacation, her family looks for a live theatre performance they can attend.  It is exciting, emotional, challenging, educational and always entertaining.  She is very excited to serve on a board that supports and values live theatre in Abbotsford.

Karis Duncalfe


As a lover of theatre from her first church Christmas pageant, Karis is thrilled to be able to give back to the art community through her engagement on the Gallery 7 Theatre Board of Directors. During the day, she's a dedicated professional in the e-commerce industry, coaching and supporting small business owners in a variety of capacities. On the board, she serves as the chair of the Nominations Committee, and is a member of a couple of other key committees. Karis loves to chat about all things G7, so feel free to find her on LinkedIn to chat about what the board is up to!
