I have been a member of CSGNA since 2001. I attained my GI Certification in 2008 and successfully recertified in 2013.
I started my nursing career at St Joseph's Healthcare in Hamilton in 1977. Nearly forty years later I am still at the same hospital. I have a background in General Surgery/ GI and Critical Care Nursing. I have seen many changes in Endoscopy since coming to the unit in 1992, from handheld scopes to new technologies of ERCP, EUS and EBUS. After nearly 25 years in Endoscopy, I still find new challenges every day and enjoy mentoring new staff.
I have been Golden Horseshoe President from 2011 to 2016. I have been involved in the planning of many local CSGNA education events and a member of the 2009 Toronto Planning committee.
I have attended many national conferences from coast to coast but my biggest accomplishment in CSGNA was serving as Chairperson of the 2014 Planning
Committee in and bringing the National Conference to Golden Horseshoe in Niagara Falls.
I look forward to my new challenge on the National Board as Practice Director.
I enjoy getting out of the city for quiet days and campfire nights relaxing by the lake with my family and friends. I am mother of three children and have been blessed to be called Nana by four grandchildren.
