Pauline Buck

Pauline Buck is a retired public relations consultant who worked with a variety of not-for-profit, corporate, and entertainment clients in Vancouver, BC, in her thirty-year career. She was a senior account executive with one of Vancouver’s most respected PR firms and later proprietor of her own public relations business. In addition, she served on volunteer boards including the Canadian Public Relations Society Vancouver, the Lions Gate Medical Research Foundation, and Vancouver AM Tourist Services Association, as president during the organization’s early years. Her writing has appeared in various media, including CBC Radio, the Globe and Mail, and the Vancouver Sun.

A divorced single parent for most of the 1970s, Pauline raised her daughter on her own in North Vancouver until she met and married Bill Buck, who became much-loved husband number two and the best “dad” ever.

Following Bill’s five-year illness with dementia and his subsequent passing,  Pauline continues to support community initiatives as a member and past president of the Rotary Club of Aldergrove, a former driver for the Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society, and a volunteer for the Fraser Valley Stage. 

She is also involved on the social committee within the townhouse complex where she lives. In addition, Pauline plays bridge (badly) with three friends who gather weekly to drink coffee, catch up on the latest news, and occasionally play a hand or two. A proud grandmother, Pauline lives in Abbotsford with her golden doodle Charlie, a companion that keeps her “up and at ’em” in all weather.
