In this latest episode, Jason has a terrific conversation with a lady who has been promoting and working in tourism in the region for over 30 years. Juanita Corbett and her husband Pat owned and operated the former Hills Health and Guest Ranch (now Spruce Hill Resort & Spa) located near 100 Mile House. A former country and western singer since the age of 6 who’s performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage, Juanita explains how life on the road as a young performer was not a life she wanted to pursue, how and why she immigrated from the US to live in the Cariboo, the importance of people who were her staff for a very long time, being one of the first businesses inducted into the US Spa Hall of Fame and much more. A genuine class act and wonderful person Juanita is moved to tears discussing her pride in living in the Cariboo and why more people should visit for their health and personal growth.
