As nurses we want to provide quality care to our patients without jeopardizing our professional practice standards, which is why I am seeking your support in becoming your next Regional Professional Responsibility Advocate.
I am a proud Psychiatric Nurse, currently living and working in beautiful Kamloops since 2008. I became an activist and steward early on my career as I have always been drawn to areas related to the Union, Labour Relations, and Leadership.
When UPN merged with BCNU, I joined the TNO Regional Executive as the Communications Secretary. I was then the Regional Occupational Health and Safety Representative from 2017-2020. Those experiences afforded me many opportunities to learn more about building collaborative partnerships and networks, local governance, mobilizing knowledge, and leading others. In addition, I learned so much from my peers about the vast diversity in nursing. This type of learning has helped to increase my awareness about healthcare and my ability to strongly advocate on your behalf.
My experience and knowledge about health and safety compliments this new role. I continue to commit to supporting safe patient care and safe nursing practices in your worksites. I will provide coaching and guidance around the PR principles and processes and further commit to being a resource for members and stewards in our region.
I pride myself on being a part of your Regional Executive and take these opportunities very seriously. As always, I look forward to working on a thriving team, being innovative to meet the needs of our members during this strange time and being accessible and approachable to everyone. Thank you for your support.
