Heidi grew up in Belle River, ON and continues to live there today. She has always had an interest in science and having many nurses in her family made the career choice an easy one.
She completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2011 from the University of Western Ontario, and a Master of Nursing/ Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate from the University of Windsor in 2016. Heidi’s first job as an RN was at Woodstock General Hospital on a Medical/Surgical floor. She wanted to move home to Windsor to be closer to family, and started working in the ICU at Windsor Regional Hospital-Ouellette Campus from 2012-2017, completing a Critical Care Certificate from Durham College along the way.
Heidi’s current position at the CKFHT is her first employment as a Nurse Practitioner after graduating from the program. In this position, her role has allowed her to see a variety of patients, with a focus on women’s health concerns and preventative care. She feels, it has been a great experience so far and looks forward to the future opportunities the CKFHT holds for her.
