Meet our Health Director, Lindsay Coltman:


I grew up in Keremeos/Hedley and lived there most of my childhood and adolescent life. I am Cree/Ojibway with descendants from Scotland. I currently reside in Princeton. I took the Resident Care Aide course in 2008 and it has been an amazing career of keeping client care needs, at a paramount level, giving the dignity and respect that they all deserve. I have been in the health field for over 15 years now, and I believe I positively impact the lives of others every day; I give myself compassionately and empathetically so everyone can live happily and with ease. I am proud to be in the field that I am in, and I love what I do because I am most passionate about making a difference.” Mîkwec

Meet Our Registered Care Aide, Paige Wallin:


I am originally from Clearwater but currently reside in Princeton. I have been a care aide for four years now and have loved every minute of it. It is an extremely rewarding career, and I pride myself on providing consistently high-quality and compassionate care. I am always willing to advocate for my clients to ensure their needs are being met and they are receiving the best care possible. As the community care aide, I want to guarantee as the Community Care Aide,  that my client’s health needs are being properly represented and met to their fullest capacities.

Meet our Community Health Assistant, Tierra McIvor:


I was born and raised in the Okanagan and have resided in Princeton for 10+ years. With taking on the new role as the Community Health Assistant, I am eager to learn more about the culture and advocate for everyone in the community. This is my first time working in health care; however, I have 5+ years of office and marketing experience and am always looking for ways to better my care. Ultimately, I would like to broaden my knowledge and education with mental health as it has always been what I am most passionate about. I am proud and honoured to be here to help facilitate appointments and supply information for everyone in a confidential and professional manner.

Meet our Home Care & Community Registered Nurse, Deb Bradshaw-White:




I grew up in the centre of England in a mining town. Now I live, work, and play on the traditional unceded territories of the Sylix.

I’ve been an RN for more than 30 years and have worked in many areas of nursing.  I am thankful for the opportunity to work with the USIB community every day.

My goal is to build relationships within the USIB Community and to advocate for and provide the best health and wellness services possible. And to deliver the same through a 2 eyed seeing approach. I believe that all should be treated fairly with compassion, empathy, and love.

Meet our Community Home Care & Community Health LPN, Sarah Antonick;

Hello, my name is Sarah; I was born and raised in Princeton, BC. I have worked in a variety of health care settings, including acute care, emergency, and long-term care. I graduated as an LPN in 2008.  I am grateful to be a part of the USIB team and look forward to working with the community members in their healthcare journey. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two very active children. You can find me camping, hiking, hunting, fishing or on the golf course or at the hockey arena when I’m not at work.
