Pre-arrangement Advisor

I am extremely excited to join the team at Kettle Valley Valley Memorial!!

I have watched their growth from the ground up and the more I explored the company the more I was attracted to what they stood for, their goal and that is really something special I want to be a part of. Kettle Valley Memorial offers a completely different level of service not only to our families but also to our community. The focus is having not great but LEGENDARY service.
There is no cookie cutter or one size fits all approach when it comes to assisting our families.We understand every individual is unique and we want to listen and be here to assist with all your needs, every step of the way. We understand there could be a  roller coaster of emotions when it comes to Pre-Planning for a service or especially at the time of losing a loved one. But one way of making the transition easier on our families when that time comes is giving them the knowledge and preparing them for when that time comes.
I have personally seen the difference in families when their loved one passed away for those who have a preplan in place and those who don't. I can honestly say in all my time in this line of work never have I heard I wish there wasn't a preplan in place....... but I have heard over and over again I wish they had preplan.
This is very close to my heart and I am very excited to get to share my knowledge and assist families in all their pre plan needs.

Anyone interested in pre-arrangements is welcome to call Shayla at 250-493-2929.
