Camille

Office Coordinator

Retired

Oh my goodness, 35 years have gone by so quickly. I have been working with Dr Micheal Racich for 25 years starting in the old Georgia Medical Building (1 Year) then moving to 1128 Hornby Street and continued for another 10 years with Dr Eric Bussieres. It's absolutely true that time flies when you enjoy your job. I have had the pleasure of working with two very accomplished men who love the work that they do as dentists. If Mike and Eric had not been the people they were I doubt I would have continued for so long.I have learned a lot over the last 35 years about dentistry and running a successful dental practice.


I am so looking forward to starting the next phase of my life. I realize that the Covid-19 Pandemic has been a challenging time for all of us, I personally had to deal with a very close call with my husband Steve almost dying from it in Dec 2019. He was in St Paul’s hospital in the ICU with a ventilator tube down his throat for 2 weeks and continued care in a ward until Feb 28th 2020. I thank the support from my staff in the dental office to help me through the challenging time. This put a push on my decision to retire from the workplace.


I will miss the great camaraderie with the staff, the celebrations for birthdays, holidays and weddings. I have had a wonderful relationship with all the staff members over the years and continue to keep in touch with many past members too. I will also miss many of the amazing patients I have had the pleasure of meeting, knowing and developing a friendship with over the years. Sharing exciting news, happy moments and sometimes sad times too. I will also miss the many children we have in the practice. Seeing so many of them growing up into wonderful young adults has been wonderful. Never having any children of my own, I felt like they were my little ones whom I cherished.


Since I have always had a love for live theatre, and have had seasons tickets for the last 30 years at various theatres my plans are to join a theatre group. They use volunteers for actors, set design, makeup, etc. So maybe I'll be up on the stage acting a role and be the ham that I am. I am also planning a cruise in October 2022 from Vancouver to the Hawaiian Islands & back to Vancouver with Steve. My roots are in Ontario and I am planning on spending a full month with my youngest sister, my nieces, and my best friend from grade school. There will also be some cottage time on Lake Erie too! I love to travel and once the restrictions are loosened I will continue to discover the World. With that said I will continue to study Spanish a little more seriously for when we travel back to Mexico.


I am also planning on doing some volunteer work with children and animals, so probably at The Children's Hospital and at the SPCA. These are just a few of the many things I am planning to do with my time to myself.


I know that MC, who is taking over my position, will continue to serve you in Dr B's office with courtesy, kindness and consideration.


To all those many people who have touched my life over the years thank you, stay healthy, safe and enjoy your lives you only get one. Should you bump into me on the streets of Vancouver or in a shop or anywhere please be sure to say HELLO!
