Thompson Region Division of Family Practice

Welcome to New Staff

We are pleased to welcome Rachann Pedersen and Sue Lissel to the Division team. Rachann has joined our team as the new Projects and Logistics Coordinator and Sue as a Project Lead.


Rachann has joined our team as the new Projects and Logistics Coordinator.  Rachann’s experience includes management, marketing and communications, as well as corporate executive support in both private industry and with the RCMP.  Her resume also includes a diverse background in the areas of fundraising and service work.

Rachann is a natural organizer and equates it to breathing for her.   She believes being one step ahead of what is required or anticipated on any project is an important part of success for any team.

Outside the office, Rachann can be found enjoying the outdoors on her bike, in her kayak, or exploring the Kamloops trails and ski hill.  Creativity is also a big part of her life as she typically has an art piece or home renovation project on the go.

Rachann is excited about this new opportunity to support and work with our members, partners and the Division.

Sue joins the Division as Project Lead with experience in Community Development, Project Management and a background in health based qualitative research.  Her recent work as manager of an early years non-profit immersed her in the work of building collaborative relationships while managing a diverse group of stakeholders. Sue enjoys working at a community level, building teams and improving community capacity to improve health outcomes for everyone.  

Sue grew up in the foothills of Alberta but is happy to call Kamloops home with her husband and two young daughters. As a family they like to spend time outdoors, exploring and enjoying all the outdoor benefits that Kamloops has to offer.  As a lifelong sports lover, Sue is now a volunteer coach supporting both her own girls and others build skills, friendships and confidence through positive sports experiences.
