Meet the Directors

Sheryl Pringle BOARD DIRECTOR | 2021 to present

I was born in North Vancouver and grew up in Surrey from the time I was 4 years old onward. I count myself lucky to have been an only child – I spent a lot of time with my mom and dad growing up, who were both very dedicated to helping me excel in various sports and school. I was a competitive swimmer, tennis and

badminton player – and having a background in competitive sports taught me many life skills that have helped me through my life experience. I’m a CPA, CGA – and curious about everything. I have a wonderful husband, amazing son, and our dog Eddy is a best friend to each of us. My true joy comes in spending time with my family, and being outdoors.

I was lucky that one of my first jobs out of BCIT was working at Surrey Community Services Society, before they merged with Options. In my role as Associate Accountant, I gained valuable experience that helped me obtain my CGA (CPA) designation, but more importantly it opened my eyes to many social issues I would have otherwise not been as aware of. Compassion and empathy have always been core values of mine, but this experience inspired my passion for finding ways to help others and give back. Over the past couple of years, I have had a mystical experience finding four leaf clovers that my son and I turned into a small charity – clovers4kindness.com. Currently I am the Senior Vice President of Finance for Mr. Mikes Restaurants Corporation. I have been lucky to work with this great organization – and its great people – for the past 11 years. Mr. Mikes makes delicious food – but we also prioritize giving back to the communities we serve through our Mr. Mikes Community Connections initiatives. As a resident of Surrey for over 30 years, and now a resident of Langley, I have a vested interest in seeing this community grow and prosper. I am so thrilled that my connection to Options has come full circle, and I am able to give back to an organization that helped me in so many ways.
