We Are IH is a new recognition campaign to spotlight our people in a real way – through pictures and stories that allow their authenticity to shine through! Each week we will showcase an Interior Health employee who is working to make a difference in their community.
Ken radiates positive energy and makes being at work a happy place simply with his presence. Over the past 12 years as a Housekeeper at Kelowna General Hospital (KGH), he has been inspired by working with patients in need, more recently in his current department, the Psychiatry Ward. Whether it’s an ear to listen or helpful advice, Ken always shows up as his authentic self to help others.
As a big believer in everyone working as a team, he is always looking out for one another and ensuring that he is offering help wherever it is needed. Ken feels lucky to be working on the Psychiatry Ward where his team feels more like family. Its second nature for everyone to help each other as they work collaboratively as a team to do the best possible job.
Born and raised in Richmond, British Columbia, he is a true outdoorsman, and exploring new areas has always been a passion of his. When Ken isn’t working you can find him exploring the wilderness outdoors in the woods setting up camp and catching fish for dinner. He loves a getaway with his wife and is looking forward to treating her very soon! Ken feels grateful to work alongside her and be a part of the incredible housekeeping team in Psychiatry at KGH. Thank you for all that you do, Ken, we appreciate you so much!
