______________________________________

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?
I am always looking for opportunities to get involved and I felt that this would be a good way to give back to Nursing students and faculty. I enjoy working with like-minded individuals and I am passionate about the program I am in. I want to be able to represent my fellow peers and be able to make a positive difference during their years of study.

What are some goals this year regarding you MUNSS role?

I am looking forward to holding Chapter Meetings and engaging with students and faculty from all 3 sites and across all streams. I am also looking forward to another successful National Nursing Students Week. Lastly I am excited to attend and represent the McMaster Nursing program at the CNSA National Conference that will be held virtually this year.

What advice do you have for you fellow nursing students?

Work hard, but always remember to put your mental health first! Anyone who works in a career like nursing has to have a caregiver mindset, always looking out for others in need. Although it is a wonderful quality, it can also be dangerous if your caregiver instincts come at the cost of your own mental health.  Remember to take those study breaks, meet with friends and family, take part in your favourite hobbies and enjoy this roller-coaster that you’re on!

What is your favourite thing to eat?

Monte Cristo Sandwich: Egg-dipped ham and swiss cheese sandwich that is pan fried, dip in maple syrup with each bite (*chef’s kiss*)
