My first job as a registered nurse was in acute care on an orthopedic unit. I also have experience working as a surgical float nurse, in nursing management, harm reduction and project management.
I am originally from Ontario, and I graduated from Queens University with a Bachelor of Nursing Science in 2007 and later went on to complete my Master of Science from Queens as well.
I have been teaching at Camosun College since 2017. I have taught both theory and clinical courses in the first and second years of the nursing program. I would have to say that being an educator is my favourite job!
I strive to create a safe learning environment that is also engaging. I have received two certifications from CASN (our accrediting body). One for nursing education and another for the use of simulation in nursing education.
