We’re incredibly grateful for donors. It is inspiring and humbling to see such generosity from members of our community.
Like our donors, we value our hospital and want to ensure it continues to deliver leading-edge care to our entire province. That’s why 100% of our staff make regular contributions to our Foundation.
I am a proud New Brunswicker. I choose to live, work and raise my family in Saint John because I believe that this is a special place. I get excited about seeing the power of local philanthropy. Our donors understand that their generosity makes good healthcare better for you, me, our families, and our neighbours. This is a cause that impacts each and every person from every walk of life. Philanthropy means “a love of humanity” and to be able to work for an organization that plays such an important philanthropic role in our community is truly a special thing.
I’ve dedicated my career to advancing causes I care about to enhance life for people in my home province. In 2015, I enthusiastically brought my experience to the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation where each day, our work will support world-class care at the largest healthcare centre in the province. Members of my own family have received exceptional care here which was critical to their full recovery and so many families in our province have experienced the same. I am so honoured to be a part of the incredible things our donors make possible in healthcare.
As a creative and driven marketer, I am passionate about working with organizations to bring new ideas and initiatives to life. As a proud New Brunswicker, the most rewarding chapters in my career are the campaigns that have had a direct impact on our beautiful province’s economy and well-being. Having experienced the fantastic care at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Saint John Regional Hospital, I am thrilled to be joining a dedicated philanthropist team supporting the mission of the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation. Sharing the inspiring stories of patients, healthcare providers, and the generous community who make a difference is truly an honor.
Before joining the Hospital Foundation in 2014, I worked at a charity and jumped at the opportunity to work at the Saint Regional Hospital Foundation. It’s inspiring to work with a team that’s passionate and believes in its mission. I think I ended up where I needed to be. My home has some acres in the quiet woods within commuting distance to Saint John. Highway #1 is a good road and even in the winter months, the plows and sanding trucks respond immediately to keep travel safe during the winter storms. Having a cafeteria is a great perk! I appreciate the interesting and diverse food.
I moved to Saint John from Halifax in the fall of 2012, with the intention of making New Brunswick my permanent home. During my time in New Brunswick, I established a Women’s Rugby program at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John, play football with the Saint John Storm Women’s Tackle Football Team and Team New Brunswick, and volunteer with many charity organizations in various capacities. Long story short, being involved in and giving back to the local community is extremely important to me and I strive to be involved in as much, and in as many ways, as possible. When the opportunity arose to come and work for the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation I couldn’t have been more excited, my passion for community involvement and career path intersected. “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life” (Confucius).
I began working for the Foundation in 2012 and it has impacted my life in ways I could never imagine! I’m so inspired by the generosity and compassion of our donors, volunteers, staff members and community supporters on a daily basis. Philanthropy is something that runs in my family – my mom volunteers for the Foundation every week (say ‘Hi’ to Sue next time you buy a wooden rose in our lobby). It’s her spirit of giving that keeps me motivated each and every day!
I am a Saint John Enthusiast and born & raised New Brunswicker, so I am ecstatic to be working with an organization, like the Foundation, that impacts my community’s healthcare and their lives! Philanthropy and its ideals have followed me my whole life, through high school to Acadia University and now, I am lucky to say, through my career choices. My role at the Foundation will be to successfully coordinate our signature events and support community members with their amazing fundraising ideas. I am very proud to be in this role and become a part of the Foundation which has such a profound and ground-breaking effect on my community.
From a young age, I have been passionate about giving back to my community. Childhood lemonade stands and raffles to support local charities were the initial sparks that led me to pursue a career in philanthropy. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of the team at the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation, who are so dedicated to bettering healthcare in our province. Every day I am inspired by the stories and generosity of our donors, volunteers, staff, and patients.
