Kelly was excited to start with Active Living in 2021. Bringing over 20 years of experience in both the medical and customer service fields she prides herself on positive patient interactions with a helpful enthusiastic approach. She looks forward to meeting all the friendly faces that come through our doors and forming lasting relationships in the community.

After high school, Kelly completed the Hospital Unit Clerk program and worked in various departments at the Campbell River Hospital. Throughout the years following she gained experience while working for a Naturopathic clinic and then for many years with Campbell River Optometry where she was able to further develop her administrative and team leadership skills. Kelly welcomes the opportunity to continue learning in any field she enters into.

Kelly has spent most of her life on Vancouver Island and loves to call Campbell River her home. She believes that we truly do live in paradise. In her spare time, you can find her enjoying all the beauty of nature in and around the Island, whether it’s weekend hiking trips with her husband and their dog, gardening in her own backyard, camping or exploring the powerful west coast.
