Photo of Cathi FairfieldI’ve lived in Arnprior for most of my life. I have been a chamber member for about 20 years and a member of the executive for 16. I have worked in manufacturing for 45 years, starting on the production floor and working my way through to my present position of Cost Analyst at Pillar5 Pharma.  In my spare time I’m usually at the cottage in the summer and the hockey rink in the winter.

I started 12 years ago with Northern Credit Union as a part-time teller and eventually worked my way up to my current position as Branch Manager. I am a firm believer that you can attain any goal you set for yourself.
