Dr. Michael J. Bos, Chiropractor
Born and raised in Williams Lake, Dr. Bos received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, California. He has enjoyed treating the residents of Williams Lake his entire career. Shortly after returning to Williams Lake in 2001, he met his wife, Allison, and Dr. Bos is a proud father of his daughter, Peyton. When he is not at the office, he will most likely be found with a scuba tank strapped to his back, on a ski hill, or on the water enjoying water sports with his family.
Grace Koch, Office Manager
Grace moved to the Cariboo with her family in 1991. She began working with Dr. Bos in 2005 on a part-time basis. Once the clinic was moved to our current location in 2012, Grace came on full-time in the role as a Medical Office Assistant. In 2015, she moved into the role of Office Manager. She and her husband enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of the Cariboo and have appreciated being able to raise their three children here. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, puzzles, and spending time with their adult children and their families. In the cold of winter, Grace and her husband enjoy some time soaking up the sun in Mexico.
Dr. Skye Raffard, Obstetrics & Gynaecology
With her roots in Midwifery, Dr. Raffard returned to university as a wife, mother, and mature student, determined to fulfill her lifelong goal of becoming a surgeon.

Nathan Walters, Registered Massage Therapist
Hello, my name is Nathan Walters. I am a registered massage therapist that has been practicing for 9 years and been working here at the clinic since 2015. I was born and raised in Williams Lake. After high school, I moved to Vernon to pursue my career. Nine years later my wife and I decided that Williams Lake would be a great place to raise our daughter. My family and I have just recently moved out to 150 Mile House, and I'm enjoying the outdoors in the area.
Jeannine Boitier, RMT
Jeannine graduated from Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in January 2018, and having been raised in the community of Big Lake Ranch, moved back as soon as her schooling was complete.
Her techniques range from light to moderately deep, using a combination of gentle fascia stretching and specific pinpointed Trigger Point release. Both styles require a bit of time for the tissues to loosen, but working with the fascia is more superficial, Trigger Point release can be quite deep depending on the muscle the knot inhabits.
She has also recently taken the Basic/Level 1 course for the Dr. Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), meaning she is certified to treat intact lymphatic systems in this method.
When not at work, she is either on the move or studying yet another anatomy and physiology/medical-related book.
Natalie MacKay, Ideal Protein Weight Loss Coach
At the age of 23, I was at my all-time low. I was the heaviest weight I have ever been and very unhappy. I thought there was no hope and I was always going to be like that forever. It was at this point I knew that something needed to be done. Not long after that I heard about Ideal Protein. With every hesitation, I made an appointment for a consultation with Shelley at Drop Zone in Salmon Arm. I walked out of that appointment and realized that there was hope. I was not going to be like this forever. With all the inspiration, support, and guidance from Shelley and the Drop Zone staff, I lost 140 pounds and 150 overall inches in just 11 short months. I have kept it off for 5 years now and have never felt better in my life. I am happier. I am healthier, I feel stronger, and I know I can live my life the way that I have always wanted to. You can too! I am excited to be able to pass on this inspiration, support, and guidance to everyone that is willing to make this life-changing decision to lose fat!
