Welcome to AltaVie

I'm glad we have peaked your interest.  You must be a cool cat who likes to work with kids. We hope that you are as excited about your future as we are about our own.

We are looking for someone who is going to fit snuggly on our team of incredible people and bring their own personal pizzazz to our office. We look forward to meeting you soon.

We are looking for someone... but we don't know who! Our team has space to grow and no professional prejudice. We are focused on the people that we love to serve. If you love to serve families along their journey from preconception, pregnancy, pediatrics, and parenting then let's talk.

Any registered, regulated profession is welcome. In particular, we feel these professions would fit readily into our space:

  • Naturopathic Doctor (to complement Dr Stephanie Schiemann)
  • Pediatric or Pelvis Floor Physical Therapist
  • Pediatric Occupational Therapist
  • Registered Acupuncturist

We are open to unexpected opportunities. Even if you are not listed above but think you would bring something to our team, let us know!

About the Job

Start Date

We're looking for someone to start as soon as possible. However, we're also willing to wait for the right person with the right skills and a good fit.

Hours

We have 3 full days available in a room shared with our Naturopathic Doctor and a few extra hours within the schedule depending on need.

Pay Scale

We offer a favourable percentage basis, commensurate with experience, education, and skill set, comparable within industry norms dependent on profession.

Patient Treatment Time

That's up to you! We have our current services set up and we are open to adding more based on what you have to offer the families of the Okanagan.

Team Dynamic

All our clinicians are treated as equals. There are no "junior" associates, "probationary" performance reviews, or seniority ranks. We work as a team. Period.

Patient Focus

Everyone deserves fantastic health. However, our office focuses on Pediatrics, Pregnancy, Family, Fertility, and Female Health.

Who We're Looking For

Experience

Any and all practitioners within a registered and regulated profession who focus on pediatric and/or pregnancy care are welcome to apply. We're looking for the right person with the right experience who will complement our team, not a specific job title.

Formal Education

We gladly accept graduates from any school or any era of schooling. However, we will necessarily discuss our intent and approach to patient care with every considered applicant. You must be registered within your profession in the Province of British Columbia and meet all their criteria for a practitioner in good standing.

Personal Attributes

We support many families and young children in this community. We are seeking someone who is committed to sharing in this amazing opportunity and who understands the enormity of this responsibility as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my contract be?
We hope that everything goes swimmingly and you are part of our team for a very long time. We also know that life tends not to be that linear.  Typically, we expect a 2-year commitment for an initial contract.
Will I need to sign a non-compete?
The short version? Yes. Frankly, we are very protective of our reputation in Kelowna. We take our job here very seriously. We are currently the only office in Kelowna practicing to this extent of specialization in pregnancy and pediatrics. Our network of providers, our clients, and our referrals sources are very dear to us and we never want to betray their trust or cause any form of discord in the community.
What if I don't have the assets/qualifications you want?
That's OK. If you are set on working in an environment that focuses on the type of client we serve, we will gladly help you develop along the way. There is no need to withhold an application just because your resume is short or you have more experience in other arenas. We simply want someone who is committed to becoming excellent in the areas that will best help you serve the families of the Okanagan, with a strong focus on pediatrics and pregnancy. A submitted application is just the beginning of a conversation.
