WHAT’S UP DOWNTOWN – Meet the 2018 summer CAP team

THE CUSTOMER Customer Care and Patrol (CAP) Team is excited for another great sunny season in Downtown Kamloops! We have hired two new CAP Team Members and are now out and about in full force! Let’s meet the team, starting with he new recruits:

Matthew Gropp: Matthew is a student at Thompson Rivers University, taking the Computing Science Program. He enjoys hiking with his dog and friends as well as playing video games and enjoying the fine craft beers that Kamloops has to offer. He is also an avid enthusiast of astronomy, biology and other sciences.

Jake Andrykew: Jake started going to Thompson Rivers University in 2017 for their Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. Jake was interested in becoming a CAP Team Member because of their interactions with people in downtown, and to experience more of Downtown Kamloops himself! In his free time, Jake likes hiking, playing board games and playing video games!

Angela Halas: Angela Halas graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Global Development from Queen’s University in 2016. In her spare time, Angie enjoys mountain biking, hiking, and of course Kamloops’ craft breweries!

Jon George: Jon George has been a part of our CAP Team since September 2016. He enjoys working for the team because it allows him to help people from all walks of life. Jon is a graduate of the Police and Justice Studies Program at Thompson Rivers University and in his spare time he enjoys being active and going to the gym.

Keegan Lawrence: Keegan has worked on the CAP team for two Summers and his favorite part about being a Cappie is the people he gets to meet, greet and talk to in Downtown Kamloops. He has continued working part-time during his semesters at TRU studying finance and economics in pursuit of a business degree!

Nathan Bymoen: Nathan has been working with the CAP Team for the past few years while pursuing a degree in Geography and Environmental Studies. He enjoys playing music, a good book, and a strong beer – not necessarily in that order.

Alexis Proulx: Alexis joined the team in September of 2015 and on a daily basis she can be found keeping the office laughing while leading the CAP Team, ensuring the program is running better than ever! Fun Facts: This year, Alexis is celebrating five years of marriage, she has a slight obsession with dogs and is an enthusiastic lover of cold brews and sunny days.

We are all very excited to continue (or start!) building relationships with all of the wonderful people of Downtown Kamloops. When you see us on the streets, make sure to stop us and say hi!
