What’s your favourite thing about your work?
One of my favorite memories was working four foundational wound care e-learning modules. It was amazing to work with different groups (clinical, learning & development, contractors, visual artists) to create a web based learning tool that is used throughout the province (and now different parts of the country).
One thing we might be surprised to learn about you:
I love nursing research! Right now I am researching nursing wound care knowledge representation in a standardized clinical terminology (SNOMED-CT) with the intent to determine a rate of equivalence and to create a mapped list of codified nursing wound care data elements.

What inspires me everyday is the drive to continuously learn. Such, that I am always looking for new educational opportunities.
