Sandeep Dosanjh,  Communications & Event Co-ordinator

Sandeep is very excited to be working for the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce with a great team alongside her. Born and raised in Mission, it has always been Sandeep’s aspiration to live and work in the same city with a meaningful job that keeps her engaged with what’s happening in Mission.


Sandeep has obtained her Bachelors of Science in environmental biology from the University of the Fraser Valley. During her time there, she worked for the marketing department in the Abbotsford campus and at UFV India in Chandigarh. Sandeep enjoys playing pickleball and solo-travelling; some places she’s been to include Colombia, the Philippines, and India.


However, no matter where she goes or temporarily calls home, she will always eagerly return to her hometown of Mission. You can find Sandeep volunteering at the Mission Folk Festival selling raffle tickets clad in the iconic fairy wings.
