Director, Health Services

Biography

Surgical Nursing lead to a 20 year career in Critical Care in Canada and the US. I have had the privilege to journey with many individuals and families through the most critical moments of their lives. I have served on 2 disaster relief trips to Indonesia, 2006 and Haiti, 2010.  I have worked both in urban and rural settings. I came to TWU in 2007 as the Associate Director of Health and was known as the “Campus Nurse”. It has been a pleasure to provide leadership to the Health Services Team as part of the TWU Wellness Centre. I love music, outdoors and people. I am married to a TWU Aviation Alum with 3 married children and two beautiful grandchildren. Can life get any better than that?
