The Administration

Program Administration

The residency program is run by two great program assistants, Melissa and Cassy.

Melissa Hoppe

Hi! I’m Melissa Hoppe Lethbridge Site Coordinator. I joined the program in May 2018.  I grew up in Central Alberta (Rocky Mountain House) and moved to Lethbridge in 2016, the weather is much nicer in Southern Alberta!  I live in Coaldale now just outside of Lethbridge and work out of the Chinook Regional Hospital.  The most rewarding part of my job is watching the residents throughout their 2 year journey; I am lucky enough to be there to onboard them right to graduation day. When I am not working I love to spend time outside in the sunshine, visit hot springs, and rollerblade with my Chihuahua Rebel.

Cassy Sinclair

I have been with the Department of Family Medicine for 2 and ½ years and with Alberta Health Services for over 10 years. Although my professional title is Site Coordinator, I often feel my role is a supporter for the Residents. I find this very fitting because at heart I am one part administrator, one part wife, and four parts mom. On my off time, I enjoy wake surfing with my husband and our four kids on our boat named Keanu Reefs. We love to camp old school with tents and to travel. We also enjoy swimming/napping in our pool, and the six of us love amusement park rides, waterslides and dance parties.
