I graduated from the Nursing Program at Selkirk in 2012 and since then have worked as an RN in various roles both in the community and in acute care settings. A large part of my career has been focused on Mental Health and Substance Use programs. I have worked as an Addictions Research Nurse in Vancouver and locally as a Case Manager in the Elder Services Mental Health program. More recently I worked as an Acute Care Nurse at Kootenay Lake Hospital.
I have participated in ongoing professional development throughout my career, learning to work in our complex health systems with diverse populations. My passion lies in community development as well as in global health. I am fascinated by how our health is so interwoven within all aspects of our lives and I am honoured to walk alongside and support others as they journey through this wild and precious life!
