While still in Scotland, a recruiter came to hire nurses and offered a chance to work in Canada. I decided to give it a try, thinking I would only be there for a few years. I’ve made North York my home ever since.
I started at NYGH a couple of years after it first opened in 1968, working in different departments before I eventually got hired in the Labour & Delivery Unit. I’ll always think of the hospital as a very happy and friendly place to work, and I loved helping people. I still remember many of the staff and made some great friends, many of whom I still hear from today.
