The Kookaburra Team


Founder & RMT

Sonia started the spa in the winter of 2004-05 within the village.  She has taken courses every year in spa development and has attended many seminars in spa operations and business. Sonia enjoys the quiet, private mountain views from her treatment room. She enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, skiing and snowboarding and visualising the next exciting step in life.

Sonia graduated from Okanagan Valley Collage of Massage Therapy in 2002. She started in Sun Peaks in the winter of 2002-3 offering massage therapy to the resort visitors and locals. Sonia has since taken various courses in Yoga, Thai massage, Hot stone massage, Core stabilization, Pelvic complex analysis and foot massage techniques. She often will use her body weight ( by using her feet) to stretch fascia, gently knead muscle, give large compressions, and to use in combination with muscle energy techniques and traction techniques.


Assistant Manager & Marketing

Originally from England, Josie is excited to experience her first true Canadian Winter in the beautiful Sun Peaks. With a background of project managing, scheduling and events in Creative Media, Josie’s drive to create a unique & flawless experience translates perfectly to the Sun Peaks Spa ethos, where she will be on hand to ensure you receive the service you deserve from start to finish.

Josie’s love of Snowboarding and ambition to work a season in a beautiful Ski Village in B.C are what drew her role at Sun Peaks Spa. When she is not welcoming you to the Spa or helping the team at both the Kookaburra Lodge or Express, you can find Josie up on the ski hill or enjoying her travels with her camera in hand.


Body Worker

The fun atmosphere and high energy is what brought Paige to Sun Peaks Village. Originally from Kamloops, her honest love of creating opportunities for each guest to relax and feel rejuvenated in a way that is unique and specific to them is her driving force here at Sun Peaks Spa. Be welcomed by Paige’s warm smile as she pampers you with soothing massage & refreshing facials, which is where she thrives. In between giving her clients the best possible treatment, Paige loves to whizz through the mountains cross-country skiing and, when she’s needing to retreat from the great outdoors, you can find her getting creative with either her sewing needle or paintbrush.
