Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community

What you do
I am a Nurse Practitioner and researcher in Neuroscience Outreach at Toronto Western Hospital.
Research provides me the opportunity to question and engage in in-depth discovery to explain theories, methods and people's experiences.
How did you get here?
I have always valued my career opportunities, my role with patients, and working with outstanding thoughtful people as a privilege. I have remained a hopeless optimist and have never stopped asking questions of myself, of my colleagues or of our profession.

I like to put vision into action, bring others onto my bus for the journey and dip my toe in the water to see how it feels.
Working in organizations that support creativity, tenacity and intellectual discovery is transformational and only makes me want to ask more questions.
Leadership is about vision, quietly listening, providing the springboard for change and remaining authentic to myself.
Be provocative, reflective, and always remain passionate about what you do. Enjoy your journey.
