In this new series, you’ll learn all about the incredible staff who make their (water)mark with our company. Everyone on our team brings the highest level of skill and dedication to our resort, and we truly feel like a family. We can’t wait to introduce you to more amazing people who help create the magic at Watermark.

Hello Debbie, Can you tell us when you joined Watermark and what your job entails?

Hi there! I started my career at Watermark Beach Resort in August of 2009 and I manage the resort’s housekeeping team of approximately 60 staff members. I make sure my team has what they need to get their job done. Recruiting, training of staff, administrative duties and more.

Where are you originally from and what brought you to Osoyoos?

I am originally from Victoria and I first came to the Okanagan in 2008. I needed a change in scenery and just love the Okanagan, it was the best move I ever made!

What makes Osoyoos feel like home to you?

Well, I actually live in Oliver, but I love the small town vibe.

What would you say is the best part about your job?

The people I work with is definitely what makes this job so enjoyable!

What personal goal(s) do you have for 2021?

I strive to be the best I can be for my housekeeping team.

Tell us a bit more about yourself! Who are your favourite artists? (Writers, directors, painters, musicians etc.)

Aretha Franklin was incredible! She had such a powerful voice. Clint Eastwood is a great actor and director too.

We would have to agree with you there!
What is your favourite food?

Oh, I really love good sushi!

Do you have any pets?

I do have pets, I have three dogs and five guinea pigs!

Wow, it sounds like you have lots of furry companions at home! When you’re not spending time with your pets, what hobbies do you like to do?

I love staying busy at home doing DIY projects

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Completing one of my DIY projects-haha!

Isn’t that funny! Tell us more about life in the Okanagan! What does a day look like when you have friends or family in town?

Well in the summer we like to hit the fruit stands and hang out at the lake. Basically anything outdoors so we can enjoy the beautiful weather we’re blessed with out here.

That sounds lovely! What’s your favourite local destination or activity to do?

Great question! Rattlesnake canyon go-go karting is always fun and I love playing a couple rounds of mini golf.

We know who we're going to call next time we’re looking for something fun to do! Lastly, do you have a favourite local winery you’d like to recommend?

Silver Sage winery is great, the lady that works there is fantastic with customers and always has some great stories to share. I highly recommend it!

We’re proud of our staff and excited at the opportunity to share more about them. If you’ve had a great experience with a team member, we’d love to hear about it! Nominate a staff member for our profile series and learn more about what makes them a special and valued member of the Watermark family.

To book a stay in Osoyoos and meet our terrific
staff face-to-face, contact us at 1.888.755.3480.
We can’t wait to welcome you!
