Bachelor of Nursing (University of Calgary 1992)
My foundational nursing education and experiences were in Alberta, where I worked in a variety of clinical contexts, including maternity and newborn nursery, surgical care, extended care and community work with adults with disabilities. I moved to the Comox Valley in 1993 and worked with children and adults with a variety of disabilities in the local school district as well as in residential homes. I have been an instructor at North Island College since 1995. I enjoy introducing students to the skills and knowledge needed to be caring professionals. As the department chair, I work behind the scenes to support the faculty and make the students' experience in the program positive.
