.

✨ Dr. Svetlana Hadikin ✨ (Beaver Valley Medical Clinic) - “I was born and raised in Castlegar. Prior to my medical training, I completed the Advanced Diploma in Rural Pre-Medicine at Selkirk College. I attended UBC for medical school, in the Southern Medical Program in Kelowna. I have been involved with Rotary for many years, and am currently a Rotarian. I love to be outdoors - I spend a lot of my free time hiking, skiing, and exploring with my family and friends. I am really looking forward to my residency training in the Kootenay-Boundary Program!”

.

✨ Dr. David Barrett ✨ (Associates Medical Clinic, Rossland) - “I was born in Edmonton, Alberta, but spent most of my school years in Cambridge, UK. I attended medical school at the University College London. I enjoy playing football/soccer and have a special interest in the use of technology and innovation in healthcare. I’m excited to come and practice in the Kootenay Boundary!”

.

✨ Dr. Rebecca Flynn ✨ (Kootenay Medical Centre) - “I grew up in B.C but gained my Medical Degree at the University of Limerick, Ireland. I had an amazing time in Europe, but I am excited to return to my home province. I grew up in Whistler but have spent a lot of time in the Kootenays as I have family in the area. I am an avid downhill skier in the winter and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities in the summer, including climbing, camping, and golf. Other interests of mine include a passion for painting and DIY. Being in the Kootenays will only encourage these interests, while also giving me excellent training in my favorite specialty, Family Medicine.”

.

✨ Dr. Camille Wiley ✨ (Castlegar Medical Clinic) - “I grew up in Edmonton, AB but spent summers camping with family or in the backcountry in the Rockies. I did my undergrad in Physiology at the U of A and then attended McMaster at the Niagara Regional Campus for medical school. My passions within medicine include hospitalist medicine, palliative-care, and combating weight stigma in health care. I am thrilled to be moving back to the mountains to enjoy some hiking, backpacking, and canoeing. When not outside you can find me knitting sweaters with Hector, my tiny beloved dog, on my lap!”
