Born in the steel town of Sheffield, England & brought up in West Yorkshire, Liz is a proud Yorkshire Lass!

After graduating with Hons in Human Resources, she began her career in recruitment and became passionate about connecting the right candidate with the right job. Canada came calling in 2001, and she jumped at the chance to experience living and working in Vancouver, BC.  The “few years” she told her mum she’d be away is now 22 years ago, as her Canadian work experience grew along with her 2 children & fur babies! After living in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Langley and now settled in West Kelowna she is grateful to have experienced different areas of the lower mainland but loves living the Interior of BC lifestyle. For the last 12 years, she has dedicated her passion for recruitment to Health Care and as Director, Health Match BC is proud of the work we continue to do to attract health care professionals to BC. Come and meet Liz in the UK for straight talk about what life is really like as an expat!
