Our Administrative Staff

Ashley is Ridgeview Medical Centre's Clinic Manager, starting with Ridgeview in March of 2023. With over 10 years of management experience, we are pleased to have Ashley aboard. 

Ashley has a husband and 2 children in the Bow Valley and volunteers for many local entities, such as Canmore Minor Hockey and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Ashley loves walks around the Bow River, reading a good book or painting for fun when she isn't being Mom or Manager. 


Assistant Manager 
From: St. Albert, AB

Chantel was born and raised in St. Albert, AB. She has 2 beautiful daughters, a dog and 2 cats who all keep her very busy. She has just recently moved to Canmore in September of 2023 to join the Ridgeview Medical Centre team.

Chantel has her Social Work diploma which she received from MacEwan University and her Medical Office Assistant Certificate. For the last 5 years, she worked at a Pediatric clinic as a Medical Office Assistant. In her spare time, she enjoys walking along the river and biking in and around Canmore.


Patient Care Coordinator - Team Lead
From: Toronto, ON

Lisa hails from Toronto, ON (please don't hold that against her). She moved to Canmore, AB with her husband and daughter in 2011 and has loved living here ever since. Part of this is due to working at Ridgeview Medical Centre as their Referrals Coordinator, since April 2018. Recently Lisa has enhanced her position to become the new Patient Care Coordinator/Team Lead associate

Lisa has previously worked administratively since graduating in 1999 from York University in various disciplines. She has worked with companies such as medical clinics and hotels, as well as more unconventional environments such as spas, outdoor education centres, weight loss centres and internally for a mystery shopping organization. Lisa is the "Jackie of All Trades"

Her current hobbies still include walking around the trails of Canmore, photographing the beautiful scenery that surrounds her, running, hiking and snowshoeing. Lisa's previous bio noted that "she has recently taken up downhill skiing". She still dreams of being able to keep up with her now 12-year-old daughter but doesn't have high hopes of achieving this lofty goal anymore. Her daughter can still ski circles around her.


Medical Office Assistant - Team Lead
From: Canmore, AB

Hotaru joined our team as a Medical Office Assistant in the summer of 2015. You can see her friendly face in the afternoons and at some of our evening walk-in clinics.

Privileged to be born in Banff and raised in Canmore, the Bow Valley has been a precious home to Hotaru. She takes pleasure in spending her time doing many of the activities her home has to offer, including walking her dog, hiking, running, camping and volunteering.


Medical Office Assistant
From: Tokyo, Japan

Shizue (Suzie) joined our team as a Medical Office Assistant / Admin Support in October 2020. Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, she moved to Canada in 1994 and Canmore has been her “home away from home" since. 

Things she always enjoys include being a mom for 2-legged and 4-legged, spending time with her family,  cooking (and eating, of course), church activities, good chocolate and more. If you don’t see her at the clinic, you may find her on some hiking trails with her loving husband, at a field nearby her house after a big dump of snow (for snowshoeing or snowball fight!) or at a local coffeehouse.


Medical Office Assistant
From: The Philippines

Susan joined our team as a Medical Office Assistant in October 2021 by focusing on supporting medical practitioners and health care professionals. Susan has been able  to put the Medical Office Assistant Certificate she earned at Bow Valley College to good use.

She was born and raised in the Philippines until a great opportunity was given to her in 2009 to come to Canada. After 10 years of management and customer service in the food industry, she made a shift in her career and now enjoys the medical centre’s ambiance and engaging with patients.

Susan may spend her days at the clinic, but it’s the wonderful knowledge of helping patients that gets her up in  the morning. She's an avid fan of movies and and loves spending time with her dear husband and three lovely daughters enjoying the beautiful mountains.
