Our Staff

Chris & Holly Thompson

Holly and I moved to Whitehorse from Alberta in 1993 with the intention of staying for a couple of years before moving home to Ontario.  We have raised our children, Nicole and Christopher here.  We like to spend time camping, fishing and exploring nature.  We enjoy the outdoors and all that our beautiful territory has to offer.  Holly and I were born in Ontario, but Yukon is certainly our home.

Jennifer Groot

I grew up on a farm in Alberta and then spent many years exploring the world. After living in several different Canadian cities, a visit to the Yukon in 1995 turned into a permanent move.  I met and married my husband Theo here, and the Yukon is where our hearth and our hearts lie.  We go out into the wild when we can for hiking, canoeing, skiing and camping. I have been with Heritage North Funeral Home since 2006 and I continue to find my work deeply rewarding.

Karla Jennings

I was born and raised in the Yukon and I am happy to call it home.  I have been working at Heritage North Funeral Home since 2010.  Since then I have completed the apprenticeship program to become a licensed Funeral Director/ Embalmer/ Cremationist. I truly love my career and all aspects of the funeral industry.  In my spare time my husband and I like to take advantage of the outdoor activities the Yukon has to offer.

Danielle Parks

I was born and raised in a small town in Saskatchewan, but my life was never short of adventures! I moved to the Yukon after my partner Greg decided to take a job in Whitehorse. We haven’t looked back since! I enjoy taking part in the arts, mainly drawing in my spare time.  I have been with Heritage North Funeral Home since August of 2015 and continue to learn and grow. I completed my apprenticeship with the Canadian College of Funeral Service, receiving an award of excellence for Embalming. I am dual licensed as a Funeral Director and Embalmer.
