I’m an LPN currently working for the SHA in the new Rapid Access Addiction Medicine clinic. Previously to this I spent 14 years working with youth struggling with addiction and mental illness at the Youth Stabilization Unit.
I came from Calgary where my passion for harm reduction was discovered while volunteering with a local agency delivering care to unhoused people. Within a year I was enrolled in nursing school and have focused on mental health and addictions for my entire career.
I volunteer in the community by co-coordinating First Aid at the Ness Creek Music Festival.
