Founder / Nurse
Being the managing Nurse of Calgary foot care nurses really challenges me and I really enjoy what I do. I am behind the Monday emails, schedules, website, mobile care, and making sure our patients are happy and taken care of. I couldn’t do it all without Tracy and Cherisse, our great front office staff. My job was created to be a very diverse role, and I absolutely love that about it. I also get to interact with all our reps, nurses and other doctors. I used to say I was like the Wolf from Pulp Fiction: if you need something taken care of, I’ll get it done! My schooling and previous occupations have been diverse, as my life shifted a lot throughout my 20s to 30s. I was a flight attendant for Westjet Airlines for 13 years then I choose to become a nurse. I took the LPN program at BVC. I also have my foot care certification and wound care. My experience working with reputable physicians who offer the highest caliber of care truly molded me into the professional I am today. Throughout my nursing career I have expanded my skill set on many different levels, with special focus on the lower body and medical foot care. I have never loved a job this much, nor have I ever been so blessed as to work with such a tight-knit, talented group of ladies plus an experienced Doctor. My main goal was and always has been to make sure every person I come in to contact with leaves feeling amazing….Its a great feeling to love what you do each day!
