Jamie Burns, MOA
Originally from the Peace River region in Northern Alberta, Dr. Lebeuf received his undergraduate training in Zoology from the University of Alberta. After globetrotting, he attained his degree in Medicine from the University of Saskatchewan, and thereafter completed his residency in Family Medicine at the University of Calgary.
His early practice focused upon rural medicine, acting as a locum throughout isolated regions of Alberta, and subsequently practicing for several years in Nipawin, Saskatchewan.
He relocated in 2001, and is proud to call Campbell River home along with his three children and wife.
When not forced into yardwork, you may see him on the river, ocean, squash court, or with his guitar.
Stephanie grew up in the Comox Valley and Black Creek and never left, now happy to call Black Creek home with her husband and two children. With a passion for music, laughter and the outdoors you can find her exploring lakes, fishing and camping with her family or singing between thoughts as she's working. She is grateful to work in a place where she can help the community and can hopefully make someone's day a little brighter.
Jamie was born and raised on Vancouver Island and has called Campbell River her home for most of her life. She has a great appreciation for the outdoors and a huge passion for baseball! Jamie loves being a Medical Office Assistant and enjoys helping others in any way she can. Jamie is very excited to be a part of the team at The Bridge Medical Clinic!
Nearly 29 years ago, my wife and I visited Campbell River, while shopping for a community to settle down in. We had dinner that night at the much loved Gourmet by the Sea in Oyster Bay, and both concluded that this could be that place. Little did we know that we would end up living minutes from there and settling into the Oyster River community. After 28 years of working at Alder Medical, I have chosen to simplify my life and made the move to work full time at the Bridge Medical clinic. I believe in building the community, and broadening the medical services provided locally. I’m proud to be a part of the Oyster River community, which is rich with wonderful, down to earth people. So whether it be on the favored Oyster River pub to pub trail, kayaking in the bay, mountain biking along the oyster river, I’ll see you around.

Dr. Lauren Baerg
Growing up in the Oyster River area has been a privilege and has given Dr Baerg a love for the North Island life. She is happy to be back in the Comox Valley where she can work, and enjoy outdoor pursuits in such beauty. She looks forward to serving the residents of Oyster River and to pursuing her love of family medicine, with a special interest in women’s health, at the Bridge Clinic.
Jesse was born and raised in the Comox Valley, and is now enjoying raising her young family here too. She can often be found out on adventures with her four kids, river swimming, treasure hunts, fishing, beach fires, and camping. This year they have taken on the challenges of all learning how to downhill ski. Jesse is thrilled to be part of The Bridge Team and the local Black Creek community that means so much to her.
