What was the most valuable lesson — inside or outside the classroom — you learned as a student the University of Toronto?

I think my most valuable lesson I learned in school and now working is that everyone is learning, not just students. As a new nurse, this lesson was so important because it brought comfort and made me feel less vulnerable when working with a large group of health care professionals with knowledge across a spectrum.

Greatest professional accomplishment:

Returning to work at SickKids on 7C which was my main goal going into nursing school. I worked in the Cystic Fibrosis clinic at SickKids doing research. These kids, their families and their SickKids team are what inspired me to become a nurse! It’s really wonderful to have made it to 7C where these kiddos come when hospitalized.

Favourite Bloomberg Nursing professor:

I couldn’t answer this! I have had a wonderful experience with all of my profs!
