Professional Background

Prior to being involved in Real Estate I owned and operated my own Hair Salon in the Scotch Creek & Celista area for 25 years. I provided in home service as well to clients as I felt that there was a real need. I really enjoyed working with people and regrettably had to give it up, at which point I looked for a career that would still involve working with the public. I also have a bookeeping  background as well and have been a partner in my Husband's business which consisted of logging operations and sawmilling. Currently we also own a farm on which we produce hay feed for horses. I have a strong work ethic and believe you get out what you put in!!

Personal Background

I came to the North Shuswap in 1974 with my parents John & Hazel Bath, sister Sandra & brothers Donald & Steven. My parents had purchased Bob's Supermarket (currently Sunnyside) from Bob Bristow when he retired. Previously we had lived in Kamloops and spent summers in the Shuswap. I graduated from Chase Secondary in 1976 & attended Hairdressing School in Vernon that fall, moving back to Celista in the Spring upon completion of my schooling. I married a local fella and we have three sons and 1 daughter. In 2005 our Daughter & Son-in-law gave us our 1st Granddaughter. I am very fortunate in that all my children live close by and work in the area.

Personal Interests

I love history especially if it is "local" so I think I have a lot of knowledge about the North Shuswap and the surrounding areas as well. I do love watching local hockey, gardening, fishing, swimming,  hiking & jogging. Reading is another one of my passions.
