My name is Jacobi Elliott. I am the medical director at the clinic. I started working at the Grandview Medical Clinic in 1997. I trained in South Africa. I have a special interest in emergency room medicine and chronic disease management. I have a special fondness for older people.
I am so proud of the work we do here, and cannot think of another place I would rather work. I hope to work here until I need a walker. One day, I hope I can roam the halls of the clinic and hospital with my walker.
In my free time I enjoy curling, hiking, cooking, and high heels.

My name is Sheila Kringle, but I am better known as "Nurse Sheila". I have been a Nurse Practitioner at the Grandview Medical Clinic for ten years now, but I have been in this community for much longer. For many years before, I was the CHN.
This community and the people in it are like family now and I love working with my clinic team. I enjoy family practice, and especially enjoy working with babies, kids, and their parents. Chronic disease management is a part of my practice that also lies very close to my heart.
I hope to work here until I retire, which will be in the very distant future, as I have two children in University. Yikes!
My name is Heather Hollinda, but many called me Nurse Heather. I am a small town girl at heart. Following graduation from the University of Calgary with my Bachelor of Nursing in 1993, I returned to my hometown and began working in a nearby rural hospital. After working in paediatrics and and palliative care, I completed my Certificate in Rural Nursing which led me to working in Emergency, Labour and Delivery.
My love of small towns brought us to Roblin in 2002. It was in Roblin that the challenges of maintaining health care service in smaller rural communities became clear to me. I wanted to do more to help my community, so along with my friend and colleague Sheila, I went back to school. We graduated from Athabasca University in 2010 with our Masters of Advanced Nursing Practice.
The Grandview Medical Clinic has provided us with mentorship first as students throughout our clinical placements and continues to be a collaborative and supportive environment to work. I enjoy the variety in providing care to all ages.
In my free time, I love spending time with my daughters and being outdoors - gardening, hiking, and snowshoeing.
I am an LPN at the Grandview Medical Clinic. I began here in 2014. Day to day I prepare patients for appointments, take patients to exam rooms, and assist the receptionist in taking phone calls and booking appointments. I also take some shifts at the Grandview District Hospital down the hall.
I'm a nurse, as well as a receptionist at the Grandview Medical Clinic. I have been working at the Clinic since June 2020, and can be seen doing the many jobs of a nurse, as well as receptionist occasionally. My favourite part about working at the Grandview Medical Clinic is Janaine - she's very helpful when the printer decides to act up.
In summer, I enjoy gardening, and in winter I spend one weekend curling in the Legion Bonspiel with George! I am also a member of the Grandview Legion.
My name is Janaine Ironstand and I am the administrative assistant as well as the locum liaison at the Grandview Medical Clinic. I started working here in 2017. I do anything from scheduling, to billing, to I.T. support within the clinic. I also travel with the physicians to the Tootinaowaziibeeng Clinic to assist in organization.
My hope for the Grandview Medical Clinic is to have an abundance of doctors and have it be a benefit to the community.
In my free time, I am a Youth Leader for the Valley River Bible Church, and Camp Director for the Valley River Bible Camp. I also love doing puzzles.
My name is Chelsey, and I am a receptionist at the Grandview Medical Clinic. My family and I moved to Grandview in fall of 2019 and have loved living here so far. I started work at clinic in July of 2020. I have found that the atmosphere at the clinic is very upbeat and positive, and we have lots of laughs each day.
I spend much of my free time with my son, doing all things active. We spend almost all of our time in summer outside, either at the park, riding bikes, or swimming at the pool. In winter our favourite destination is the hockey rink in Grandview!
My name is Amber Fisher and I am the book keeper at the Grandview Medical Clinic. I have been part of the clinic team since October of 2018 and think it is a great environment to work. As well as taking care of the clinic's books, I work for the Gilbert Plains Municipality.
I was born and raised in Grandview and love this tiny town!
