Originally from the Philippines, Tracey left her homeland in 2002, destined for a new life and new adventures in Canada.

tracey2Though her first stop was Ontario, to complete a ‘bridging’ program at the University of Toronto, after completing the program, she traveled west to the Okanagan, to work for Hudsons Bay Canada.

New to the country, there was much to learn and experience here in Canada and Tracey took to the Okanagan lifestyle and the region’s natural beauty and outdoors immediately.

After nine years working with HBC, Tracey joined Paolo to take the leap and open their own family operated pharmacy.

At first, the idea of working for themselves was a bit daunting. But the opportunity to develop a pharmacy offering the kind of truly personal, caring service the two had always recognized was lacking in the Okanagan, was simply too good to pass up.

Today, Tracey shares The West Kelowna Medicine Shoppe’s Pharmacist duties with Paolo.

When she’s not busy caring for the medicinal needs of her customers, the active Mother of three enjoys spending time with her kids, exploring the natural wonders of the Okanagan Valley!
