C.V. Resume

Inspiration:
Much of my work is donated to "Doctors Without Borders Canada", (MSF). My husband  has been a sponsor to MSF for 30+ years. In 2004 , our youngest daughter was traveling from Australia to Thailand 3 days before Tsunami hit the shores. Her life was spared and it was at that point my work became  part of MSF.

In Lacombe, Alberta,  October, 2009 Dr. James Orbinski, gave a speech to a large group of medical professionals. My work was displayed on the overhead power point before Dr. Orbinski’s presentation.  I had the honour to introduce him. MSF received the “Nobel Peace Prize Award” in 1999 for Dr. Orbinski work during the genocide.
