About me

I was born/grew up in:  Riverview, New Brunswick

I now live in: Saint John, New Brunswick

I completed my training/education at:  Bachelor of Nursing, University of New Brunswick

What I do at work

I work as part of an interdisciplinary team at the New Brunswick heart center, which is located in the Saint John Regional Hospital. We provide care to patients across the province who are experiencing heart health issues. I work as a registered nurse who cares for patients after they have open heart surgery.

My career path is

It seems like I always knew I would become a nurse. Even when I was very young, I wanted to be a nurse. I completed a Bachelor of Nursing degree in 2016. Since then I have completed a certificate specialized in cardiac nursing. Currently I am working on achieving my critical care nursing certificate. This will allow me to work in specialized areas such as the intensive care unit (ICU). I initially applied to the nursing program at the University of New Brunswick because I wanted to help and care for people. Since nursing is a trusted and respected profession, with good job security and satisfaction, it is a great career for me!

As a cardiac nurse, I believe I have an important impact on the lives of my patients. Through teaching, motivating and helping patients and their families, I help improve my patients’ quality of life during hospitalization and after they are discharged.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I hike and spend lots of time outdoors. I have recently started golfing and became a dog owner.
