Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Lynelle joined Camosun College early in 2012 to teach courses in the Medical Radiography Program. She instructs students in radiographic procedures, pathology, image critique, and any supporting subjects needed. Lynelle has made her home in Victoria since 2010, drawn by Canada’s majestic scenic beauty and the promise of true love (never disappointed by either).

Before becoming an instructor at Camosun, she explored the rugged, rural BC Interior while working for the BC Cancer Agency’s Mobile Mammography Screening program. With over 16 years in healthcare in the US & Canada, this graduate of Weber State University in Ogden Utah brings a unique cross-border perspective to Medical Radiography education at Camosun.

Lynelle has earned a ridiculous number of certifications including two Advanced Imaging baccalaureate degrees and practiced as a midlevel physician extender in central Wyoming for 6 years. She is also trained in CT, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, PET, and Interventional Breast Ultrasound.

When she’s not teaching, Lynelle spends time with her teenaged son playing video games and enjoying all the fringe benefits of moving to Canada like fresh Pacific salmon, kayaking, hockey, and poutine.
