Vessy loves being in nature and being active. Sports have always been an integral part of her life; playing and coaching and now watching her daughter play school sports and just enjoying the outdoors in my free time. The three things Vessy can't live without are laughter, nature and Fresh is Best 7-layer dip. Her favourite thing about Kamloops is that she can hike, walk and kayak all within 15 minutes of her home. She likes that it's big enough that it has everything she needs, but still feels like a small town where you meet friends everywhere you go. To Vessy, Pride means giving people a space to be themselves and giving people a sense of belonging, acceptance and community.
