Kathleen and her husband John became residents of Anarchist Mountain the fall 2019 after completing the construction of their home as Owner/Builders. Originally from Manitoba, Kathleen and John have lived, worked and vacationed across Canada, but kept chasing the sun to the Osoyoos area.
Kathleen has a background in Architecture and Business and spent her career in the building industry. She has worked with in both the public and private sectors delivering design & construction projects and managing portfolios of physical assets. Building teams has been a focus of her work with the goal of improving processes and outcomes. Balancing work with play, Kathleen is an avid curler and has rediscovered her ski legs inspired by much snow and the close proximity to all the great ski resorts in the area.
JAMIE V. WRIGHT
Jamie moved to Anarchist Mountain in 2015 with her husband Ken after living in Cranbrook, BC for 28 years. Born, raised and educated in BC and Ontario, she is grateful to live here on the mountain. Jamie and Ken raised their son, horses and dogs on their five acres in the East Kootenays and outdoor life has always been very important. Newly retired, working on and enjoying the land has become her focus.
Having worked many years in retail, caregiving, clerical and administrative positions, she brings different experiences and perspectives to the community.
“Peter is a newcomer to the mountain having moved here in April of 2020 with his wife Debbie. Peter was born in Vancouver and spent his entire life and career in the Lower Mainland. After selling his business and retiring in 2018 a decision was made to get out of Dodge and move to Osoyoos. This has worked out better than expected – Peter and Debbie absolutely love the mountain, the climate, the neighborhood and the neighbors.”
