I’ve been surrounded by healthcareprofessionals my entire life, having 3 aunts and a mother as practicing RPNsand RNs in their own specialties. Beyond this, I’ve had a few run-ins withhealthcare where those aiding me took the time to hear my symptoms and plan aneffective route of treatment to bring me to better health. I want toparticipate in this movement as a “physician extender” (CAPA) to improve theefficiency and delivery of healthcare, so that wait times and patient overloaddo not hinder the care that physicians can provide. My broad range of experience inhealthcare settings speaks to the position of a Physician Assistant in itsinterdisciplinary nature.
When I think of my career, I aim to continue to learnand advocate for healthcare in an environment that is progressive andstimulating. I would be honoured and excited to be a part of a growing,innovative healthcare community in a collaborative setting to achieve betterhealth for citizens and improve care delivery in areas that need it most suchas rural and Northern communities.
