Master’s in Nursing (Charles Sturt University, 2016)

Bachelor of Nursing (University of New Brunswick, 2012)

Subjects: Health Care Assistant, Nursing

In 2012 I began my registered nursing career in general internal medicine and rheumatology, where I developed a passion for providing holistic care for older adults experiencing acute and chronic health challenges. With a particular interest in supporting clients and their families transitioning from hospital to home, I completed my master’s in nursing and began my role as a transitional care specialist, which I thoroughly enjoyed. 

After a cross-country move from Ontario to BC, I transitioned to community nursing where I am grateful I had the privilege to work as a home care program manager for two gulf islands located on the traditional unceded territory of the K’omoks First Nation. It was here that I gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for the complexities involved in home and community care while living in a rural/remote area.

In 2020 I began working as an instructor at NIC within the Health Care Assistant program and now within the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. My role as an instructor has been the most fulfilling and I am truly honoured for the opportunity to learn alongside our bright and passionate nursing students.

My current professional interests include focussing on cultural safety, equity, diversity, and inclusion to affect positive, progressive change within the health care system in a meaningful way.
