Wendy and Maddy, 2013
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from McMaster University (in Hamilton, Ontario) in 1991.

McMaster was a great place to go to school and I met many wonderful people there, including Eric (who says you can't date your TA!).

Hiking in Dundas, 2012
I worked for a decade as a bedside nurse in the Neonatal Nurseries (a combined Intensive Care Unit - ICU - and Special Care Nursery) at McMaster Children's Hospital. Following this, I acted as one of the unit's educators for two years while also teaching at Mohawk College in the Neonatal-Perinatal Post-RN Nursing programme. I accepted an amazing opportunity to start a new role as the Data Management Specialist for the McMaster Children's Hospital. I now work with local, provincial, and national databases mostly for the Neonatal and Pediatric ICU's and provide benchmarking, quality improvement, administrative, and clinical care support.

I guess I liked going to McMaster University so much that I decided to combine my two passions (neonatal nursing and computers) and went back to school and finished a Master's degree.
