I was adopted and now my birth mom lives right across the street from me. I found her in 2013 and she moved from Ontario to B.C. to live near me. I was able to find her through a few Google searches, sent a message to her, and now she’s my neighbour. It really goes to show how small the world is.

We have a really good crew. When you have the right crew and right dynamics, it’s like hanging out with your buddies. Everything flows and goes better at work. Also, there’s no detachment between boss and workers. We all work together and really enjoy what we do.

It’s very comfortable in Kamloops and you can get to other places easily. If I go see a hockey game in Vancouver for instance, it’s not too far of a drive. Kamloops is close to everything and you can enjoy going to events without having to live in a huge city.

A burger. If you can’t figure out what to eat, a burger is always a good choice.
