Biography: My diverse career in nursing leadership has spanned from nursing practice, to governance of professional associations, to nursing education. Just six months into my nursing career, I assumed the position of Operating Room Head Nurse. This experience prepared me for progressively senior leadership roles in a broad range of nursing and interprofessional practice areas. As President of the MARN, I had the opportunity to engage with and advocate for nurses, as well as liaise with government, health care employers, and community groups. I subsequently transitioned to providing leadership in academia, working with amazing teams in the design, development, implementation and evaluation of quality undergraduate and graduate nursing education programs. Throughout my career, I have engaged in formal and continuing education, contributed on boards and committees, and had the privilege of collaborating with inspiring nursing leaders and colleagues.
