Lisa is an Ultrasound Technologist in Terrace BC.
My husband and I relocated from Australia and we are taking advantage of the snow shoeing, cross country skiing, skating and curling that our wonderful community has to offer. As we live amongst the mountains, every weekend is an opportunity to explore this outdoor playground within British Columbia!
Northern Health was proactive in modifying my work schedule so that I could achieve great work-life balance! I work with a great diagnostic imaging team where we encounter a huge range of advanced pathology that is not usually seen in a small city. I also get to work closely with the referring doctors to ensure the best outcome for our patients, which is incredible!
Jillian is an Operating Room Nurse in Fort St. John BC.
We moved to Fort St. John for the opportunities that presented themselves to my husband and I. We were able to enhance our careers, buy a house, and get the dog we always wanted. Everyone was extremely welcoming in the community and it didn't take us long to make friends. My husband discovered fishing and I discovered running on the endless trails just minutes from town!
I love the diversity of working in the Operating Room. We do different surgeries every single day and see a variety of patients. I wanted something that was challenging and rewarding and the Operating Room was the perfect fit for me! I never thought as a new grad that I would get hired into the OR, but within a year I was orientated and completed my Peri-operative Nurse Certification. Everyone was incredible and showed patience in teaching me new skills. I never felt intimidated by anyone, which I truly believe led to a great orientation experience and allowed me to be the Peri-Operative Nurse I am today!
Andreas is the IT Manager, Corporate Application Services in Prince George BC.
I originally grew up in Prince George, moved away, but then moved back because it offered a unique blend of the outdoors with the amenities of a larger community. I stay and work in the North because it offers great opportunities for continuous learning, growth and advancement, leading edge innovation, strong benefits, and good job security. The flexibility of my employer also allows me to teach at UNBC as an adjunct professor, so that I can stay on top of my field.
I love technology and innovation, and IT is an enabling technology for profound changes. Furthermore, the healthcare sector has significant opportunity for technology growth, and this allows me to do what I love and make an impact on the quality of care.
I love that my team is working together towards a common cause of using technology to improve people’s jobs and the quality of care. Leadership is very open-minded and the team is very open and is not afraid to suggest new, innovative ideas and challenge status quo.
