Yvonne Moritz to lead College in Science, Technology and Health

Okanagan College Media Release

Okanagan College’s new Dean of Science, Technology and Health will be bringing a broad spectrum of educational and managerial experience to her role when she starts in early October.

Yvonne Moritz is leaving her position as Associate Dean, Specialty Nursing, at BCIT to join Okanagan College’s leadership team. Prior to being Associate Dean, she was program head of Pediatric Specialty Nursing at BCIT.

Moritz’s experience is international in scope – from developing and implementing a pediatric nursing program in Guyana to helping the government establish some of the regulatory framework for pediatric nurses.

She has two master’s degrees: one in nursing and the other in adult education.

“The opportunities I see unfolding at Okanagan College are substantial,” said Moritz, who is already a resident of Peachland. “There are solid, well-respected programs in each of the these areas and I look forward to being a part of the continued success at Okanagan College as it responds to the changing educational needs of industry and the community.”

Moritz replaces Dr. Dianne Crisp.

“Yvonne is a great addition to our team at Okanagan College,” said Dr. Andrew Hay, Okanagan College’s Vice President Education. “She’s demonstrated a capacity to inspire and bring people together along with an enthusiasm for creating programs that meet student and employer needs.”
