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!
Guest Services & Administration
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.
Guest Services & Marketing
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.
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.
Dining Room Manager
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.
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.
I was born and raised in Salmon Arm. I married young and then my husband and I with our two young children, at the time, went overseas to do missions work for several years. Our third child was born abroad during that time.
We moved our family back to Salmon Arm in 2001. Now, our three children are married and we have four beautiful granddaughters. Our family has great fun together. Gathering together is at the top of our priority list. For me, family is one of life’s greatest blessings!
I joined the PT team in 2004 and am very happy to now be involved with coordinating activities for its residents. PT is a fabulous place to work with great co-workers and wonderful residents to interact with. I love working here!
