First, I wish to respectfully acknowledge that I am raising my family, living, teaching and learning on the Unceded traditional territory of the K’òmoks First Nation.
My main areas of nursing work have included the following: mental health and substance use, including community, remote and hospital in-patient settings; rural public health; travel health advising, communicable disease follow-up and sexual/ reproductive health clinics. Coming to teach at NIC was one of the best decisions I have made- I absolutely love my job.
Some of my current professional interests include: developing an advanced Addictions Nursing course, working on personal and systemic decolonization, reducing stigma around mental health issues, supporting student well-being and contributing to a culture of caring in the learning environment and workplace. I am also passionate about dacshunds, chocolate and my family.
