Welcome to the Vernon / Kelowna Regional Page!
Meet Diane Alcorn
Vernon & Kelowna BC Regional Manager
Tell us a little about what made you choose this career path.
Since I was a teenager, I have worked in services and volunteered with individuals to help them overcome their challenges. My passion for making a difference has grown with hands on efforts supporting deinstitutionalization in British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario, volunteering at orphanages in Jamaica and Mexico, and developing residential/life services in the Lower Mainland and the Okanangan. Raising two vibrant sons (yes, I’ve been an active hockey/lacrosse mom!) and facing the realities of one diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, has humbled me to be grateful for the blessings that we do have. There are always positives that shine through when we recognize and embrace the diversity in abilities.
What’s one thing you value about working at Pivot Point?
Pivot Point has built a reputation of excellence with customizing services to the individual and bringing positive, lasting changes. We provide flexibility in services by listening to and respecting the challenges that are a family’s every day.
Can you introduce us to the people in your region?
More coming soon!
Is there anything else you’d like people to know about your team?
