I was born and raised in Liverpool England and from an early age wanted to do something in the medical field. Getting into Medical School was almost unheard of for a female at that time so I decided to train to become a Physiotherapist. I moved to Canada in 1975 to take up a position as a Physio at the QVH. I intended to stay for a year and move on but somehow I never left ! I fell in love with the Mountains and Revelstoke. I married Don Manson in 1979 and we have 3 children and one Grandchild. I joined the Revelstoke Hospital Auxiliary Society when I retired and have served as president for the past 2 years.
I have represented the Auxiliary on the board of the Revelstoke and District Health Foundation for the past five years .
Steven was born in Vancouver BC, graduated from University of BC in 1983 with a pharmacy degree and moved to Revelstoke in 1984. He and his wife own and operate a local pharmacy. Steven has been a board member of Health Foundation since early 1990’s. He is married and has two daughters.
He actively volunteers with the personal belief that volunteering teaches us to work together to resolve problems and challenges. The end result is a community that is independent, authentic and resilient. Steven has sat on City of Revelstoke advisory committees for health, economic development and community enhancement. He is a past chairman/president for the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce, Revelstoke Association for Community Living, Revelstoke Rotary Club and the Revelstoke Community Foundation.
In his spare time Steven enjoys listening and playing music, jogging, curling and spending time with my family.
