I am honoured to be the recipient of the Canadian Nurses Foundation Northern Award. I am currently a Bachelor of Science in Nursing student at Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario. Prior to entering the nursing program, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree at Lakehead University in 2016, majoring in Indigenous Studies. Additionally, I completed my Social Service Worker diploma as an accelerated student in 2017 at Cambrian College.
I am a dedicated Cross-Country Running Varsity Athlete at Cambrian College. As an athlete, I am afforded the opportunity to act as a community leader, whilst developing perseverance, communication, and collaboration skills that transfer to my nursing practice. In addition to my passion for varsity athletics, I enjoy investing time in a variety of hobbies and activities that range from knitting and sewing to playing guitar and skateboarding. I value and embrace community connection. I immerse myself in numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the school year and during the summer months.
From a young age, I have always felt akin to helping those in need. Engaging in acts that nurture others is something that I value. I know that in my nursing practice, my affinity for helping others will undoubtedly assist in providing supportive, caring, and meaningful holistic health care experiences. I am proud of my accomplishments thus far, and I look forward to the prospects and challenges that the future holds!
