“As a new grad who moved across the country to pursue this career and learn new treatment techniques, BC Cancer was a great place to start my career…I love being in the mountains! There are incredible lakes, hikes, and four definable seasons. Kelowna is definitely great for those with an outdoor lifestyle.”
