A passionate nurse and volunteer, Matthew has dedicated his career to healthcare and community service. Recently, he participated in two missions to Ukraine, where he provided care to patients with traumatic injuries. 

Through his nursing career and active volunteerism, Matthew Krmpotich is dedicated to improving the well-being of those around him. After earning his nursing degree and graduate certificate in critical care from Laurentian University and Durham College, he kicked off his medical journey as an emergency room and intensive care nurse. By 2020, he was in British Columbia at Kelowna General Hospital, facing the COVID pandemic head-on as a healthcare provider.

Matthew's compassionate heart led him beyond hospital wards when he became a volunteer for the Canada Ukraine Surgical Aid Program. There, he embarked on medical missions overseas to provide vital care to patients with complex traumatic injuries. With two missions under his belt in 2023 and another in 2024, his commitment to healing knows no bounds. Recently, he's taken his nursing practise up a notch and will be working as a Critical Care Transport Nurse servicing the interior of British Columbia.

Matthew credits his Catholic high school experience for instilling a solid work ethic, the value of community, and a passion for healthcare. He says, “My teachers, mentors, and friends played a pivotal role in the success I have achieved and have made me into the person I am today.” His journey is a testament to the power of dedication, compassion, and a strong community support system.
