“My favorite superhero is undoubtedly Dr. Evil, from Austin Powers.”
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am an emergency physician, who grew up in BC. I did medical school at UBC, and then spent 5 years in Edmonton doing my specialty training in Emergency Medicine, and working on my Masters in Distance Education and eLearning, until moving back to BC in 2003. Aside from working in a tertiary, trauma hospital (Royal Columbian) and a linked community hospital (Eagle Ridge), I have also had the chance to work as a ‘casual’ emergency physician at both BC Children’s Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital.
What’s a unique item in your emergency kit?
My intubation module and my deluxe drug vial module. I have the designer equivalent of a medication module on MY emergency kit. Benefits of being a doctor.
What do you do at ePACT, and what excites you about the contribution you are making?
My role at ePACT is evolving, but right now I help to provide context regarding the information collected in ePACT, and its relevance to health care professionals in an emergency.
If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?
I would explore behind the scenes at a movie set.
Something interesting you might not know about me is…
I have two daughters, and all three of us have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I’ve been pre-planning for their teen years. Very evil.
