Donna has been a nurse for 34 yrs. She has had the privilege of nursing around the world. Donna spent several years in Bermuda, worked in Calcutta, and did out posting nursing in the high arctic. Donna also spent a year traveling throughout the continent of Africa. During her travels to Africa the impact of AIDs on the people, and the indignity of their death left an impact. Donna is currently the Executive Director of the Prince George Hospice Society. An accumulation of nursing experiences has led her to her current position. Donnas’ first introduction to hospice care was the nursing she did at Mother Theresa’s Hospice home in Calcutta. That opportunity made Donna realize that at end of life, care and compassion are the ingredients to great patient care. In the high arctic, giving people the opportunity to reach for their dreams and accomplish more than they ever imagined was the work she did to empower women and give them quality of life in the hopes of the preventing suicide, for which the rates were extremely high. For that work Donna was recognized by the Minister of Health with a Queens Jubilee medal.
