We Are IH: Nicole Parkhill

We Are IH: Nicole Parkhill

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 month, four Interior Health employees or medical staff will be featured through our News@IH website and our weekly In the Loop Roundup email newsletter. 

With a love of connecting with others, Nicole chose a career at Interior Health where her presence creates a positive impact on the lives of people in her community. Over the past 2.5 years as the Assistant of Organizational Development & Change/Learning Management Systems at Community Health & Services Center, Nicole has continued to be inspired by building relationships with her peers and customers.

As an avid learner of new skills, Nicole brings so much value to her team as she collaborates with her peers to bring positive change to IH. Her hard work was showcased as she handed over $1,000 to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club for Pink Shirt Day that she led on behalf of IH. It’s moments like this that make Nicole’s favourite quote, “never take anything or anyone for granted”, even more relevant.

Born and raised in Kelowna, Okanagan / Syilx (Saay-ilks) Interior Salish, she loves exploring the beautiful four-season playground of the Okanagan. Luckily the golf season is the longest in the country because Nicole loves golfing and the thrill of making a good shot. With a passion for cooking and entertaining, she loves hosting her family and friends over a delicious meal.

You may not know this about Nicole, but she loves singing, even if it is mostly for herself. Wanderlust at heart, she is patiently waiting for the time when she can travel again and experience new places. Thank you Nicole for all that you do for your community and Interior Health!
