Hillary Schell
Office Manager

Born and raised in Argenta BC, I headed off into the wider world after graduating from JV Humphries. I played basketball and studied Anthropology at Okanagan University College/UBC Okanagan in Kelowna. After several years of studying and travelling, I settled in to a sixteen-year career in Management at the Casino in Kelowna. My boys were both born in Kelowna and in April of 2020, I made the decision to follow my heart and move my boys and I back to the north end of Kootenay Lake. I am truly excited to be a part of the KiN team and look forward to connecting with the community from my role as office manager and tech level 1 support.
