Move to Work

Angelica Zarichny

In 2019, Angelica Zarichny and her husband moved to Medicine Hat from Sainte Rose du Lac, Man., when her husband accepted a position with the Medicine Hat Catholic School Board.

“This, by far, is where my heart lies.” - Angelica Zarichny.

Zarichny accepted a teaching position at St. Louis School, where she feels extremely fulfilled. She says the relaxing city has met her needs, and it keeps her and her husband outside experiencing.

“I’ve met the best people, I have a great job, and I’ve never been so happy in all my years,” she says. “Medicine Hat is a great place to live.”

Zarichny says even her friends have noticed a positive change in her moods and say she seems happier in her new home, in which she agrees and says it’s the best place she’s lived in all her life.

“I didn’t know a lot about Medicine Hat before we moved here. I just had no idea how beautiful this city really is.”

She walks Police Point Park at least twice a day and often enjoys other trails around the city. The coffee shops, eateries and breweries keep the couple out and about enjoying their time together, and the downtown brings a refreshing shopping experience with its locally owned businesses.

“We love this city. From the people, to the amenities, to the recreations and the parks – it’s all here and we’re really happy to be here,” she says.

The coulees, wildlife and warm weather is appreciated by Zarichny daily, especially while she adventures the city’s trails.

“I’ve lived in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and now Alberta. This, by far, is where my heart lies.”

Angelica Zarichny enjoys the sun behind the Medicine Hat Public Library, which faces the South Saskatchewan River and historic Finlay Bridge.
