You might say Pathology is in my blood. I was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario by a Blood Bank Technologist (mother) and cytotechnologist (father). I came to beautiful British Columbia for University, and fell in love with Pathology during my Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (BMLSc.) program. Following my undergraduate program, I worked for a year as an immunohistochemistry technologist at the Genetic Pathology Evaluation Centre (GPEC) and decided to pursue medical school. Throughout my medical school career I was drawn not only to Pathology, but came to love learning about hematology as well. I decided to marry the two interests and pursue a career in Hematological Pathology. While in residency training, I pursued extra training in laboratory quality management and completed the UBC POLQM Laboratory Quality Management Certificate course. Following residency, I joined the VGH division of Hematopathology. My interests lie in quality improvement and utilization management.
