Meet our newest Emily


Emily is joining us for the summer as an office assistant during what will be a busy summer as we move into our new building. (We now have two Emily’s on staff just to create confusion.)

She just finished her first year at Selkirk College in Castlegar in the Rural Pre-Medicine Program. She applied for early entrance and received both an early entrance scholarship and an associate physician’s award. Rural Pre-Medicine is a three year program, after which Emily hopes to attend medical or pharmacy school. Born and raised in Trail, she has always wanted to go into a medical profession.

“It’s a great program. It has set me up with a lot of volunteering opportunities as well, such as volunteering for the stem cell registry,” she says. “I’ve always valued helping people out. I want to be able to be that person who can help someone.”

When we’re not keeping her busy in the office, Emily plans to be out enjoying the summer.

“I love the summer and being outside, and I really enjoy going for walks and hikes with my dog.”
