Come on in to meet the team, or give us a call. We are here to assist you in any way that we can.
Dana Shewchuk, In-Store Sales Representative
Dana is brand new to the health and home care industry, though her former training and career paths have led her naturally to the Surg-Med family. Dana has professional training in crisis intervention and trauma support, and her expertise with Surg-Med Vernon continues to benefit from her experience from when she worked for the Vernon victims’ services.
Not unlike many of our valued staff at P. G. Surg-Med, Surg-Med Vernon, and Surg-Med Kamloops, Dana’s qualifications also include First Aid training, working as a Wildland fire fighter and as a volunteer firefighter, as well working in the construction industry until very recently.
A busy mom with four kids- two girls and two boys-, Dana enjoys an active and healthy out-door Okanagan lifestyle.

He apprenticed in the United Kingdom in Electrical Power Engineering, and has attended various courses involving training for Invacare, Pride, Sunrise, Savaria, and Roho. Interestingly, Lee has also worked and lived in the Middle East and in East Africa.

Cam Lochhead, Technician
Cameron is a technician with over three years of experience in the industry and has been with Surg-Med since November of 2014. He began working as an electrical apprentice out of high school, but was injured in a motor vehicle accident and left with a spinal cord injury in 2003. After completing his rehabilitation and doing some traveling and soul searching, he decided to go back to school and completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology while working as a service technician.
Cameron has experience in several fields including IT, as well as cultural impact assessment and land-use planning. He is currently pursuing his Paralympic dream as a ski racer while continuing to work as a service technician. In his spare time, Cameron enjoys collaborating with fellow musicians and travelling. His understanding of disability due to his own experience with permanent injury, as well as his years spent working in the industry, makes him a real asset to the team.
