OUR CORE VALUES
Marketing & Events Coordinator
Samantha Desouza is a Marketing graduate from Thompson Rivers University. She loves the Kamloops outdoors and spends all her free time either hiking or enjoying the local food scene.
Administration and Member Service
Christine graduated from TRU with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and is applying her fine arts education to the Administrator & Membership Services position at KCBIA. Her artistic and mechanical interests keep her busy taking apart (mostly) non-working items and saving the interesting bits for future projects. It’s a big box.
CAP Team Supervisor
Curt was hired as the CAP team Supervisor in conjunction with Tourism Kamloops as the Experience Team Coordinator and will oversee the TK Bold Street Team. He is a graduate of the BCIT Broadcast + Communications Program and has worked at radio stations in Vancouver and Kamloops. He has been in the community since the Summer of 2019. When not at work, you can find him on a baseball field or golf course. As well as a number of the terrific Downtown patios.
