Meet the Team

Julie, Clinic Administrator/Finance

Julie, Clinic AdministratorJulie joined Kelowna Family Chiropractic in August of 2019. After over 30 years in finance, she felt it’s time to mingle a little. No more solitary confinement. Characteristically this lady is highly relational and has found her home among the staff and many patients she has the privilege to get to know. If you ask, she will tell you she loves her job. Working with like-minded health care providers is a dream come true after decades of studying many preventative health modalities. Her friends would refer to her as their “Health Guru.”

Growing up in the Great White North, Julie found herself headed to the coast after a couple of years of business school in Prince George. Vancouver became her home for the next 10 years where she met her husband, Darrell, and started their family. They moved to Kelowna in 1992 and completed their family with their third babe. Raising her children into adulthood has been the greatest joy of her life.

The Okanagan lifestyle suites Julie perfectly as she loves to get outdoors, hiking, kayaking or simply sitting on a patio with a delicious glass of local vino. Julie’s favourite quote comes from Mother Teresa:

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.

Erica, Receptionist

Erica Kelowna Family Chiropractic receptionistIn her role at the practice, Erica greets patients, schedules appointments and handles other various administrative duties. Before joining our team, Erica worked in other health care offices performing administrative work. She was drawn to work in a chiropractic office as she appreciates the natural approach to treating the body to achieve overall wellness.

While working toward her bachelor’s degree, Erica spent a year in Wales and returned to Canada to finish her degree. Wanting to advance her education, she realised she had more opportunities in the UK so Erica attended the University of Chester in Chester England. There she earned her master’s in art therapy.

Erica is registered as a professional member with the Canadian Art Therapy Association and she is in the process of getting registered as a clinical counselor with the BCACC.

After completing her master’s and returning to Canada she spent some time in Ontario where she grew up, before deciding to move to Kelowna in October 2020 to be closer to her family in BC.

In her spare time, Erica likes painting and drawing. She also enjoys getting out in the beautiful mountains in Kelowna and taking her dogs outdoors.
