When someone says ‘Kelowna’ what’s the first thing that comes to mind?

Thinking about Kelowna makes me feel happiness and pride. There are so many amazing things here depending on the season – Fresh produce, hiking, wineries, beaches, sunshine, boating, skiing, camping and community are all things that come to mind.

If you could change or improve one thing about your community what would it be?

Increased subsidized housing for low income families.

What’s your favourite local company?

Okanagan Lifestyle Apparel

What are the top three places you would recommend that tourists visit when they are in Kelowna?

  1. Kelowna Farmer’s Market
  2. Tree Brewing
  3. Knox Mountain

What do you see for the community in 20 years?

It’s so exciting to see our community growing and flourishing in recent years. I see an increased population enjoying this abundant land. I see world recognition for our beautiful lakes, mountains and delicious wines and food.
