Recipient of the 2020 HEALTH CARE PROVIDER OF THE YEAR
HEALTH CARE PROVIDER OF THE YEAR
I am truly humbled and honoured to receive this nomination as I have never regarded myself as a clinician. There are so many esteemed colleagues in this category and I am so proud and thrilled to be associated with them.
Bayshore Therapy & Rehab NRIO has allowed me to run a company and also the time to give back to the community for nearly 25 years; embracing Bayshore’s mission and vision – passionate, caring, being the difference and the clinical / rehab foundation to include respect, dignity, compassion, quality and safety!
We strive to help anyone who contacts us. If we are unable to help through our programmes or at one of our residences, I will do all I can to find the appropriate resources in the community.
I lead the BTR NRIO team with compassion, dedication, commitment, team work, diversity and strong relationships to reach common goals for our clients and their families. It has been my honour to represent the Ontario Rehab Alliance at PABIN (Provincial Acquired Brain Injury Network) and volunteer for various organizations including Chair of the Toronto Acquired Brain Injury Network conference planning committee. The numerous boards and committees I have sat on has given me the ability to listen to my clients, their families, the internal BTR NRIO and external team members and learn from them; the medical specialists, the insurer and the legal team.
I am a strong advocate for our clients, families and the brain injury community and believe in trust, passion, caring, improving, pride, appreciation, learning (best practice), listening, making a difference, and having an impact!
