I am committed to the provision of safe and quality patient care, the maintenance of best practice guidelines and standards within an ethical framework.  Patient safety is first and foremost.  Having been an RNAO member since I was a university nursing student, I understand the importance of the RNAO.  It would be my pleasure to serve as your north eastern representative.  I have experienced nursing in the north in Sault Ste Marie and as a family group conference coordinator in Timmins, North Bay, and New Liskeard.  I have also nursed in southern Ontario.
