Feature Couple: Dr. Gillian Acton (Jill) & Bruce Acton


dancing-with-the-veron-stars-jill-acton-bruce-actonReturning home to Vernon three years ago, psychiatrist Dr. Gillian Acton (Jill) and management consultant Bruce Acton love the active lifestyle offered by the Okanagan Valley. Spending nearly 30 years in the Alberta capital, Edmonton, Jill and Bruce have brought their community spirit and philanthropic mindset to their new community. Bruce, a graduate of Vernon Secondary School, volunteers with the Vernon Public Art Gallery and serves on the board with VantageOne Credit Union.

When they’re not out running, cycling or cross country skiing, you’ll find them in the ballroom studio. However, the leap to centre stage the night of Dancing with the Vernon Stars will be a big one for this couple who prefers blending in on a crowded dance floor. Help them with their stage fright and donate!
