Jeremy Menzies – Manager

Jeremy Menzies

Born and raised in Salmon Arm, from a young age I loved to play golf and “knew” that one day I would be a Head Professional working in the golf industry. After achieving both a Golf Course Management and a Business Administration diploma at Camosun College in Victoria, BC, and working at the Salmon Arm Golf Club for eight years, I went in a different direction.

During the transition into my role here at Piccadilly Terrace Retirement Residence I helped in property development, worked on the stucco crew during the construction phase, became the maintenance man and then the Assistant Manager before finding myself managing this wonderful place, working with a great team of professionals who share the same values I do.

Maybe it’s due to my golf course days, but I’ve always enjoyed being around seniors. They embody humour, stories and wisdom. I believe that offering a secure, enjoyable and worry-free living environment to our residents is a very worthwhile goal.

When I’m not at “The Terrace” I love to spend time with my wife and four amazing children, playing and coaching hockey, and fishing. Oh yes, and hitting that little white ball around too!

Jan Peters – Guest Services & Administration

Jan Peters

I grew up in Salmon Arm and came back in 2003, after spending 20 years living and working in many positions across Canada and overseas. I was a House Mom in boarding schools in both Germany and Saskatchewan. In Abbotsford, BC I worked as a Life Skills Teacher with mentally challenged people and as a supervisor of Care Aides, as well as in a variety of secretarial positions. Early in 2004 I joined the Front Desk team here at Piccadilly Terrace.

I love working here because I enjoy interacting with the seniors and building relationships with them. My colleagues are great to work with, which makes coming to work enjoyable, and I’m able to use my strengths in administration and organization to help keep “The Terrace” running smoothly and efficiently.

My interests outside of work include travel, camping and interacting with friends and family.

Darla Girard – Guest Services & Marketing

Darla Girard

I was born in Calgary, but moved to Salmon Arm from Rocky Mountain House, AB in 1980. In my 20’s I started my own business – a respite and home care service for special needs children and the elderly. I loved working with seniors so I went on to become a Long Term Care Aide in a private facility. After the birth of my son I was fortunate enough to be invited to come to work here at Piccadilly Terrace.

My fellow employees are amazing and I love being part of the Front Desk team. We all work together to create an atmosphere that is warm and friendly. Every senior here has a unique and fascinating story to tell and each one deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Piccadilly Terrace has been my second home since August, 2004 and I plan to work here until I’m ready to move in!

Outside of Piccadilly Terrace I am a cook, homemaker and a chauffeur for two wonderful, busy teenagers and my husband.

Ineke Hughes – Guest Services & Bookkeeping

Ineke Hughes

Born in the city of Assen in the Netherlands, my family immigrated to Canada just in time for me to enter Salmon Arm Elementary School at the age of six. Later on in life, I became co-owner of a small trucking firm based in 100 Mile House, BC. I was the bookkeeper/secretary, mechanic’s helper, and chief gofer for twenty years. After the business moved to Langley I took an Office Procedures course at Burnaby College, which led me to employment as Manager of Langley Business Services, a position I held for seven years. I moved back to Salmon Arm early in 2002, and began my employment with Piccadilly Terrace Retirement Residence on March 1, 2004. I thoroughly enjoy working on the Front Desk team at “The Terrace.” Being involved with the residents, keeping their health and welfare always at the forefront, and knowing I am part of a team that provides a secure, comfortable environment for them gives me a great sense of satisfaction.

When not at work, I keep busy as a volunteer with several charitable organizations in Salmon Arm. I also enjoy hiking and camping, travelling, reading, and singing the Blues.

Bruce Frederickson – Head Cook

Jeremy Menzies

Raised in Surrey and educated in the Culinary Arts Program at Vancouver Community College, my wife and I moved to Salmon Arm in 2003. Since then our family has expanded to include three children. I have been cooking professionally for 18 years, joining the kitchen team here at Piccadilly Terrace as 2nd Cook in 2004 and becoming Head Cook in 2006. Creating tasty, healthy meals for seniors is always an ongoing, enjoyable challenge for me and my team in the kitchen.

We have great people to work with here at “the Terrace, and I enjoy listening to all the interesting stories the residents have to tell.

Away from work I like spending time with my kids and my wife, cooking, and watching hockey.

Connie Plett – Dining Room Manager

Connie Plett

I was born in Winnipeg Manitoba, but was raised in Richmond BC. I moved to Salmon Arm in 1991, and all three of my daughters were born here. I have had many jobs over the years, including driving for UPS, being Secretary for Enderby Christian School (now Kings Christian School), working for a golf course, and for our local airport when it was in operation. I have been working at the Terrace since 2009.

I love coming to work everyday because I enjoy all the friendships I have developed over the years with my co-workers and residents.

 

When I'm not working I love to spend my time with my grown daughters, reading, watching basketball - especially the Golden State Warriors, and Hallmark shows.

Tammy Trottier – Head Housekeeper

Tammy Trottier

I have lived my whole life in Salmon Arm. When I married and had children I was a stay at home mom. A few years ago I began looking for a part time job, and found myself on the housekeeping team here at Piccadilly Terrace. In 2010 I accepted the position of Head Housekeeper, and it is a totally positive experience.

I really enjoy working here because, since day one, it has always felt like home to me. The other staff members and all the residents are another big part of why it is so much fun to work here.

My interests include watching Junior A hockey, scrapbooking and spending time with my family.

Vicki Doose – Activity Co-ordinator

Vicki Doose

I was born, raised and married in Salmon Arm. As a young couple my husband and I went to Bible College and through a missions training program, heading overseas in 1987 with our two young children. Our third child was born abroad. Our family lived in a remote location, learning the language and culture of a small peoples group which then enabled us to teach the bible chronologically in their own language. At the same time we developed a literacy program, allowing them to learn to read for the first time in their lives. In 2004 a New Testament in their own vernacular was presented to them. This experience led me to discover I really enjoyed working with people and so I found myself joining the team at Piccadilly Terrace, becoming the Dining Room Manager in 2006.

It is a blessing to enjoy going to work with awesome co-workers in a positive atmosphere and in turn bring a portion of joy to those we serve in the dining room.

I enjoy quiet moments, reading, spending time with family. My two granddaughters are a special delight; they have brought a new dimension of joy and fun into our lives.
