My name is Lindsay Pentland I graduated from St. Clair College in 2007. I started at Leamington Hospital shortly after, where I worked on almost every floor. Because of the small facility I have been able to dabble a little in many things, such as Rehab, med/surg, palliative, step down ICU/tele, CCC, ambulatory care, and since Jan 2019 I’ve been in the Rapid Assessment Zone in the ER. I also worked with a doctor there in his pain clinic there since 2017. In 2019 I was voted in as a union representative and have been thinking about taking this course to improve my overall leadership skills. After a long year + I was starting to feel the burn out, so this summer I changed things up and decided to do something I’ve always wanted to.. I became a travel nurse. I am currently up in Northern Ontario along the coast of James Bay in remote fly in only communities. I am relearning what ‘small town’ is and it is truly reigniting my passion for this profession!
