Director

Tracey was born and raised in the North East of England and lived there until her mid 30’s when she and her family emigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Working in the newspaper business most of her life she worked for the Winnipeg Free Press for 15 years before semi-retiring to beautiful Peachland. 

Now employed part-time by the Peachland View she wanted to give back to the community she instantly fell in love with by volunteering, so through her work for the paper, she was drawn to the Wellness centre. Tracey and husband Ian enjoy cycling, hiking, travel and the odd Okanagan winery.  “ Of all the things I am most proud of are my two daughters Becky and Annie, one is studying law in the UK and the other is a social worker in Winnipeg”.

Staff

Christina MacMaster

Executive Coordinator

I have worked in the not-for-profit sector for many years (100 or so), in various roles and in many capacities including that of a volunteer. As a Manager in not-for-profit, my work has taken me from that of a small organization with a staff of 3 to work within a large national organization with branch offices throughout the country. I thrive on variety, enjoy being busy and active and believe in the value of community. I joined the PWC in 2014 and have enjoyed the evolution and changes of this great organization.  My role as Executive Coordinator provides the opportunity to be a part of helping others in my community, and allows me the chance to embrace and enjoy all that I believe in. I feel very fortunate and grateful to be able to live and work in a community I love and choose to be a part of.

Jacqui Nuttall

Services Coordinator

My husband and I retired to Peachland in 2017. Shortly afterwards I  began volunteering at the Peachland Wellness Centre.  I love the caring atmosphere and community support offered here so I was thrilled when given the opportunity to job share as one of the Services Coordinators. I worked as a Registered Nurse for 25 years and hope that my knowledge and experience will help enhance the well-being of those we serve. 

Teri Pentland

Services Coordinator

I began my role in 2017 after 4 years as a volunteer. My background is in healthcare/nursing with a focus on seniors’ health and wellness.  My love of learning led me to redefine myself after my first “retirement” into someone who is embracing ageing gracefully and supporting others to do the same.  Family, friends, balance and flexibility are my focus for this stage of my life and the PWC embodies it all.
