I moved to the West Kootenay after falling in love with the region on a camping trip. I was able to find a great job at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union, where I really get to see the results of my work. I love the diversity of the communities here and all the different outdoor activities we get to enjoy. It has the strong sense of community that you get outside of urban areas, but with all the modern technology and amenities you need to keep you connected.
