Gilda is originally from the lower mainland, living in Chilliwack, Agassiz, and Harrison before moving to Kelowna. She grew up visiting her grandparents in the Okanagan and so, although she moved to the valley in 2003, she has grown up loving being in the Okanagan and sometimes feels as though she is originally from here! Gilda joined our clinic in July 2018 and has since become a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant and very valuable member of our team. She is also a certified Medical Office Assistant. Gilda is the proud mother of her three grown children, one son and two daughters. She has been married to her husband for six years, though they have been together for thirteen years. Together they enjoy many outdoor activities like camping, fishing, boating, and enjoying the beautiful landscape we have here in the Okanagan Valley.
