I’ve been writing since the early 90’s when, as a nursing student, the London Free Press published a blurb I wrote about promoting CPR in our high schools. In 1994, my English professor nudged me to submit a paper I wrote during my orthotic/prosthetic studies. It was peer-reviewed by the Family Physician Journal – April 1994 and titled, “Recognition of and Current Treatments of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome”. During college, I won a bursary to study sign language and was granted a certificate of excellence in English studies. For the past decade, I have been actively involved in ophthalmic (eye) health care. In 2006, I submitted a paper to the Education and Research Foundation of JCAHPO (Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology) about “dry eyes” and wrote to The Canadian Champion (Milton’s community newspaper) about our growing need for a pediatric ophthalmologist. Since the Spring of 2009, I have been a member of the Milton-Write-Now writer’s club. Earlier this year, I enjoyed being employed on a pay-per-project basis writing module assignments for use in the continuing education of allied health care practitioners. Since then, I am looking forward to taking on more assignments and would also welcome those including photography as well.
