Recreational Therapist | Bonne Bay, NL

Connection is truly what keeps me going at work. I get to meet our residents exactly where they are and help make moments really matter. I feel like I’m in a job and a place that was really meant for me. At our Health Centre, everyone wants everyone to succeed, whether you’re a professional or a resident. We each have our own individual goals that add up to something bigger than ourselves. I love making sure that people around me feel comfortable and that I can help them reach their full potential.

I haven’t always been working in healthcare. I would say to anyone that it’s never to late to decide or make the switch. The experiences I had volunteering at a long-term care centre in my 20s really stuck with me. I knew I wanted to eventually be working in a place like this and so close to home.
