Born in Ottawa and raised in Langley, B.C., Marc Fex’s inspiration every day is to put a smile on the faces of people he works with. As a fairly new Activity Worker with Interior Health, having started in December 2020 as a greeter at a COVID-19 testing site, Marc’s proudest moment so far is joining the IH team. He loves being able to interact with people and make their day.
Marc describes himself as enlightened, caring and fun-loving – all attributes that go a long way in his chosen career. He supports seniors that use our centres, including doing activities, helping with meal times, exercising with them and sharing stories.
Something you probably didn’t know about Marc? He wrote and recorded a song called ” Hey Girl,” which aired back in 2002 on the University of British Columbia radio station, CiTR.
Marc also started his own YouTube channel about four years ago.
“I go to dealerships and do walkaround reviews on ATVs, UTVs, outboard engines, boats, sleds, dirt bikes, etc. My biggest love is ATVing. I wanted to get plugged into the industry a little more and stay in the loop of technology. I’m excited with my channel’s growth!”
Marc’s always had a love for the back country, starting shortly after he got his driver’s licence. Over the years, off-roading with trucks and jeeps turned into hitting the back country on ATVs. Marc says, “it’s an amazing feeling to find a lake you’ve never seen before. To spend time in a peaceful, quiet place.”
Marc’s nomination keeps the We Are IH loop going:
Kara Cooper. “Kara genuinely cares about her staff. She’s easy to approach and always open to finding the best solutions. She’s always thinking ahead as to what our needs might be or what might make our work lives easier. I can tell Kara has a huge heart and I’m very thankful for her leadership. She has her team’s best interests at heart. I’m honoured to be part of her team! IH has some amazing people on its team! ” – Marc Fex
