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.

Stephanie received an Honours BScN from the University of Windsor. Upon completion of her degree she moved to a rural northern Ontario town to work as a nurse in a remote wilderness setting. Following her camp nursing experience she returned to Windsor where she worked in the infectious disease control department of the Windsor Essex County Health Unit. Looking to expand her practice Stephanie accepted a position with a pharmaceutical company, a decision which ultimately led her to move across the county to Victoria, BC. Once settled in Victoria she accepted a position as sessional instructor with the University of Victoria Nursing program. Through her sessional work at UVic her passion for education became undeniable and she accepted a continuing instructor position at Camosun College in the registered nursing program. Stephanie balances her passion for nursing with her passion for her young family, happily spending her free time with her husband and two young sons.
