1. What does your typical workday look like?

My day-to-day consists of multiple skill sets that I enjoy bouncing between. Sometimes I create content and resources. Other times I consult or advise on best practices. In the future I may be educating and facilitating workshops. I find the day-to-day exciting because it is different each day and I get to connect with so many people across the hospital. Although I’m a couple months in, I am still meeting new people and I am very impressed with the wealth of knowledge everyone has and their passion for improving healthcare and research at Women’s. 

2. What excites you the most about working at WCH?

What excites me most about working at WCH is that everyone here truly loves what they do, it’s a beautiful work environment, with employers that genuinely care for employee well-being. I recently participated in the yoga wellness activity and would highly recommend. Additionally I frequent the patio because I love to feel the sun!

3. How does your work contribute to creating a positive patient experience?

My work is in two departments, Academics (LHS) and the Office of Equity. Within the Academics department and the newly formed Learning Health System we are trying to learn from patient experience and improve the system in real time. Understanding patient experiences, considering research ethics and quality improvement with an EDI lens is important for a positive patient experience. Additionally, in the office of equity, internal systems reflect how our patients get the best care. A system that runs smoothly from the inside reflects the success of hospital programs, patient engagement, and experiences.

4. Tell us one thing that your colleagues would be surprised to learn about you!

My colleagues would be surprised to learn that I have lived abroad in a few countries!
