As a Registered Nurse my interest in community nursing, particularly palliative care at home, drives my connection with community. My recent clinical experience includes caring for people with life limiting illness in their own homes towards the end of life. Within my practice I have developed a keen interest in clinical education with nurses, patients and families in the community setting. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. Compassion and community connection drives my work within the community.
