I graduated from the Aberdeen Hospital School of Nursing in 1993 in New Glasgow, NS. After graduation I started my professional career in Texas where I specialized in adult Neuro Critical Care and worked at various large teaching hospitals in the Dallas area. After working 10 years in Texas I moved back to Nova Scotia and spent the next 11 years working at the bedside in the Halifax Infirmary on the Med/Surg/Neuro ICU and Cardiovascular ICU. My experience in both of these ICU’s provided me the opportunity to focus on the care of an organ donor and their family which then lead to work as an Organ Donor Coordinator for 5 years.
During my time at the Halifax Infirmary I was able to complete my Bachelor in Nursing degree on line from Athabasca University and received national certification in Critical Care Nursing from the CNA. I am currently enrolled in courses to receive my Certification in Simulation.
As a lifelong learner and preceptor I am extremely proud and excited to be a part of the Learning Institute faculty for the Critical Care Nursing Program.
In my spare time, I like to comb beaches for sea glass, travel and spend time at the “bungalow” with my husband.
