Helen Balzer
Charitable Management Strategy


Meet Helen.

Having worked with Helen for many years, I have found her to have a wide array of positive personal characteristics and professional skills. Helen brings a wonderful balance of efficiency and precision, as well as grace and generosity, to the technical, legal or fiduciary aspects of a task. Helen’s ability to wade through the details of a government request or start-up challenge and bring it to resolution is a huge benefit to those who possess vision but lack the personal resources for all the details. Helen is a tireless worker, a fun person and a loyal friend to those she partners with.
— Pastor Brent Cantelon, Langley BC
