Your Penticton with Nicole Clark

Find out why people in your community love Penticton

The Penticton Western News is looking to hear more from our community members and is interested in finding out what they love about Penticton.

We are profiling different residents for our community section, by asking them to answer a list of questions about Penticton and why they think it is so great.

This week we are profiling Nicole Clark who trains and coaches local small business owners through her company KISStrategies for Business. Along with her husband, she enjoys spending time at as many events as she can — including walking the entire market every Saturday from May to October.

Find out what Clark thinks about her community of Penticton.

When someone says ‘Penticton’ what’s the first thing that comes to mind?

I wouldn’t live anywhere else.

If you could change or improve one thing about your community what would it be?

Bringing all of the citizens together to find common ground. Change is difficult for many people and it is usually due to a lack of information. We need to improve communication amongst everyone to grow a healthy community.

What’s your favourite local company?

Given the number of local companies I work with I would be hard-pressed to choose one. I will drive out of my way to shop at local, independently owned businesses. They are my favourite.

What are the top three places you would recommend that tourists visit when they are in Penticton?

1) LocoLanding;

2) Okanagan Beach;

3) Narmata Bench Wineries.

What do you see for the community in 20 years?

A healthy community including open communication amongst all stakeholders where decisions are made for the betterment of all. This includes transportation including bike lanes, bus routes and safety for seniors.

If you know someone that you would like to see profiled please have them fill out the form by going to the link and have them submit a photo (horizontal) as well.
