How/Why I Become a Teacher:

As my nursing career has always been focused around health education, teaching at Confederation College has given me the opportunity to pass along my knowledge and enthusiasm for health care!

What I Like Most About Teaching:

In my mind, the best part of teaching is helping students achieve their goals, gain confidence and strive to be the best PSW they can be!

My Educational Background & Qualifications:

Through Lakehead University, I have obtained an Honours in Kinesiology, Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I am currently working on my last year of a Masters of Public Health with a Nursing Specialization.

My Relevant Experience in the Field:

My previous experience includes working as a Public Health Nurse at the Thunder Bay District Health Unit, a Community Care Case Manager/Intake Coordinator at the Northwest Community Care Access Centre and a Rehabilitation Case Manager for Boreal Health Services. This work experience has provided me with great community partnerships, leadership experience and a background in client-centered care, which to me, should be at the forefront of health care.

With leadership as my main area of interest, I am thrilled to represent the Northern Ontario Region 11 & 12 on the Nursing Leadership Network of Ontario (NLN.ON) Board of Directors.

My Hobbies & Other Interests:

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, running, biking and baking.
