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. About 18 years ago I began my own business – a respite and home care service for special needs children and the elderly. I loved working with people 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.

I love working as part of the Front Desk team as it allows me to interact with all the residents. Every senior here has a unique and fascinating story to tell. The atmosphere here is very warm and friendly, and I plan to work here until I’m ready to move in!

Interests outside of Piccadilly Terrace include any activities with my husband and two wonderful children, camping, creating things and scrapbooking.

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.

Vicki Doose – Dining Room Manager

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.

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.

Rosemary Foster – Activity Co-ordinator

Rosemary Foster

Born in Revelstoke, BC, I grew up in North Burnaby. My Dad was one of 38 first cousins so my brother and I were always on the road, visiting aunties and uncles. During high school I worked part time as a clerk at T. Eaton Co. After graduation, I took an Architectural Drafting course, but soon discovered that wasn’t for me. I wanted to work with people. Luckily Canada Post hired me as a letter carrier and occasional truck driver. I met and greeted people, providing a valued service. I’ve been a volunteer with Brownies, Girl Guides, Foster Children and brain injured adults. For 14 years I worked developing employment programs for families and their mentally challenged adult children.

Here at Piccadilly Terrace Retirement Residence it’s all about providing the best customer service and top notch programs for our residents. Every day there’s a new story, a good laugh, or just ‘being there’ for someone. All those evenings and weekends with aunties and uncles served me well.

Outside my work at "The Terrace" I enjoy gardening and philately (I belong to the Calgary Philatelic Society). Every summer I organize and host a family reunion - yes, for the descendents of those 38 cousins. I especially enjoy spending time with my daughter and much loved grandchildren.
