Glenn Charbonneau has always had a passion for human movement, but it wasn’t until a chance encounter with a local practitioner in Kelowna a decade ago that Glenn felt compelled to get into physiotherapy. 

He pursued his Bachelor of Human Kinetics at UBC Okanagan before earning a Master of Physical Therapy. 

Joining Interior Health (IH) in 2022 after stints in the Lower Mainland and Calgary, Glenn has embraced the opportunity to contribute his expertise within the Primary Care Network, where he assists patients with complex medical needs as part of a collaborative team.
