Kamloops Brain Injury Association – advocates for survivors of acquired brain injuries.
What do you do for your company?
I am the Executive Director at the Kamloops Brain Injury Association, which means I get to do everything from setting the budget to shovelling the snow.
What is the goal of your business?
We are here to help survivors of brain injury live as well and as independently as they can.
How long have you lived in Kamloops? If you were not born and raised in Kamloops, why did you move to Kamloops?
I was born and raised in Kamloops but left for 20 years to live in England and Kenya. The weather was a lot better in Kenya. I moved back about 5 years ago, as Kamloops is a great place to raise kids.
What makes your company so special?
Our association is special because of the brain injury survivors. They got their lives turned upside down and rose to the challenge of keeping ongoing. They are the ones that make it worthwhile.
Why did you choose to be located in downtown Kamloops?
Downtown Kamloops is in the middle of everything and the bus loops are just a block away. A lot of association members use transit, so it was an easy choice for us.
What is your favourite thing about downtown Kamloops?
My favourite thing about downtown Kamloops is having the library right across the street. I almost never have overdue books now!
What are the three best things about downtown Kamloops?
- Being able to walk to most of my business meetings.
- The handy coffee shops and restaurants.
- Less snow to shovel than my home up the hill.
