Clinical Nurse

Biography

I was born & raised in Toronto, ON. I decided to become a nurse after going to Swaziland in South Africa on a Missions trip and volunteering at a medical clinic there. I completed the nursing degree program at Ryerson University and worked as a new grad in the perinatal program in Mount Sinai Hospital. Then I decided to transition into community health as a home care nurse. I found myself seeking a new experience within the home health sector and took advantage of an opportunity to move to Vancouver, BC when the Olympics were happening. So I started working in downtown Vancouver in 2009 as a home care nurse. I met my husband at church shortly after, and we now have 2 young boys together. We moved to Langley in 2017, and I have been working casually for Fraser Health as a discharge planning & ambulatory care nurse in Langley Memorial Hospital. In 2020, I joined the health services team here at TWU. I really appreciate expanding my public health and primary care experience, as well as working with the team here. It feels like a second home! In my spare time, I enjoy kickboxing and going for hikes. I also volunteer for the medical services team at my local church.
