Patient Experience Director (she/her)


1. What do you enjoy about being part of the admin team?

I love being a part of something larger that makes a difference to people’s lives. I am proud that everyone cares about providing a first class service to our patients. The administration team comes from all walks of life, and with that brings a wealth of knowledge, professionalism, understanding, and compassion towards everyone who walks through our door.


2. What do you like about working at CURA? 

CURA provides vital services for people in Edmonton and surrounding areas and I am part of that.  But most of all it is the people who work here, everyone committed to improving patient’s lives. We laugh, care, and enjoy each other’s company too.


3. What brings you joy? 

 I find joy in waking up looking outside, and not knowing what’s in store for me that day. Of course, my family also brings me joy. I am inspired by being a good role model for my boys. 


4. What have you done to manage the pandemic? 

I have done my best to stay calm and to keep moving forward. I have stayed busy with my kitchen, garden, growing plants from seeds, and seeking out unusual and tropical plants.  I am hoping with my new crops I will rediscover my passion for cooking.
