Newest Addition to Our Halifax Hotel Family

Congratulations Wenda & Chris!  On November 9th, 2011 Reegan Christopher Berkvens entered our lives several weeks ahead of schedule.  Not surprising since his Mom, Wenda Berkvens (née Garabb), is early for everything.  That’s what makes her a great Conference Services Manager at our Halifax Hotel.  Wenda has been a Westin Nova Scotian associate since 1996 and is now on maternity leave.  Friends, colleagues and clients meet Reegan!

While Wenda is on maternity leave, contact any of our Conference Services Managers and Executive Meeting Managers for your next event. Our team specializes in one-stop shopping and offers professional, personalized service to ensure the success of your Halifax Convention and events. Click here to contact us!

Congratulations Wenda!
Congratulations Wenda and Chris on your little bundle of joy. He is so handsome. Thank you Denise for posting this - I haven't seen a picture of him yet so this is awesome. Please send Wenda my biggest congrats :)

Congratulations Wenda! I'm so happy for you. I wish you, your husband and Reegan all the best! And I also want to say hi to the rest of the team and thank you for everything you taught me during my internship! Greets, Rianne (Dutchie)
