Our Staff

Michelle Vanness - RN

Hi, I’m Michelle. I have been an RN for 25 years. I love working at this clinic because of the supportive environment and the continuity of care we have been able to provide our clients over the years. The Kootenays have always been my home where I have loved skiing, hiking, cooking and spending time with my busy and active family.

Karen Ritter - Office Manager

Born and raised in the Kootenays, summers have always been my favourite time of year going camping and enjoying the beautiful lakes. This year I’m going to try sledding and hopefully I can start enjoying Kootenay Winters. Working at Columbia Primary Care Clinic has been a very enjoyable experience. This office has an amazing team spirit and really seems to care about each other.
