Meet Cynthia Winthrope, General Manager, Interior Homecare Solutions.
The sunny Okanagan is a great place to live and work for Cynthia Winthrope, a kind-hearted administrator who loves to keep things organized.
Growing up in the small, northern town of Smithers, BC, Cynthia was anxious to explore the world. After graduation, she headed straight to BCIT to enroll in the Business Management Program, which offered a travel and marketing component. After living in Vancouver for 6 years, Cynthia was ready to explore some more so she made the move to Vernon where she worked part-time at BCAA. Needing full-time employment, she stumbled across a job posting with a new company called We Care, now known as Interior Homecare Solutions.
Working for a company that provides support and care for residents seemed like the perfect fit to Cynthia. She hasn’t looked back and has now been with Interior Homecare Solutions for 20 years as General Manager, in charge of business planning and growth development.
Why has she stayed so long?
The answer for her is easy. She loves the people and she loves to be an administrator and manager. But, also important to Cynthia is to work for a company that makes a difference in the lives of others. Even though she’s not hands-on with clients, her favourite moments are when she gets to speak with them.
“I feel good to be part of helping people,” she says, “I often talk to clients who are so appreciative of our services, it makes me feel like I am contributing in some way.”
Cynthia really wants people to know that there are companies like Interior Homecare Solutions who are there to help.
“Things don’t need to get to a desperate place before you ask for help, resources are available.”
Living in this beautiful community, Cynthia and her family take advantage of the outdoors by biking, hiking, and gardening. Although her two children are grown, she and her husband still spend lots of time with them enjoying all that the Okanagan has to offer. And then there is her cat – a Garfield like character who always needs to be on a diet, thus keeping her quite occupied.
Like many of us, Cynthia dreams for the chance to travel again but in the meantime, she takes great enjoyment in her community, her family and her work.
