Reena was born and raised in Prince George and moved to Burnaby to complete her Bachelor of Technology in environmental science at BCIT. She worked for Northern Health in various positions in the environmental health field from 2002-2007, and as a Public Health Inspector for Manitoba Health from 2007-2011. In 2012, she completed her Master of Science in natural resources and environmental studies at the University of Northern British Columbia and was just coming off maternity leave when she started to work with Dr. Pahal (she thought at the time that it was temporary!). Reena manages Robson Valley Dental in McBride, and also came on board with Dr. Pahal when he joined this clinic in 2017. She believes that a family-run practice creates a great work environment for the whole team, and increases the quality of patient care and overall satisfaction!
