Being able to do his part during the COVID-19 pandemic is one of David Baclig’s proudest moments as an Interior Health employee. During a time when hygiene and cleanliness has been top-of-mind, David’s job as a housekeeper has been even more important than ever.
David was born and raised in San Fernando in the Philippines, now calling Kelowna home with his wife. One of David’s favourite things in life is finding new ways to make his wife, Faith Ann, happy, such as playing the guitar and singing her random songs. The two are thrilled to be expecting a baby boy in October.
Describing himself as a God-fearing man, passionate and a hard worker, David is also a good listener and reliable, both as an employee and as a friend in times of need. His wife and family inspire him in his career, and it’s David’s hope to continue working with Interior Health for many years to come.
“One thing I always try to do is share my blessings with others, especially my friends and family.”
In his free time, David also enjoys playing basketball. He longs to explore new things and places, and looks forward to travelling the world soon with his family.
