As a Director of Care at Carestay Healthcare Services Inc., Catherine brings a wealth of knowledge and experience not only from the health care field, but also from the business sector. Prior to becoming a registered nurse 27 years ago, Catherine garnered valuable experience working with variety of organizations in areas such as communications, advertising and security investments. However, over the past few decades Catherine’s focus has been in healthcare.
Having acquired a vast knowledge base working as a Staff Nurse, in the medical, surgical and emergency departments of hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area, Catherine was provided with the opportunity to work as a traveling nurse in the United States. Upon her return to Canada, Catherine worked as a visiting community nurse for a non-profit nursing agency. Her placements over the past 3 decades have ranged from hospital emergency departments to providing case management services at a GTA Community Care Access Centre. She has also been a colleague, mentor and preceptor to other nurses and a Nurse Educator at a Pre Surgical Admission Centre at local community hospitals.
Susan brings a diverse background in business management and accounting systems to Carestay. Susan was employed in the financial and legal sectors for the past 30 years.
When a family member was hospitalized, Susan saw many inconsistencies in the healthcare system. As a caregiver, Susan experienced the gaps in home healthcare firsthand with her family.
Since that time, Susan has learned how to navigate and advocate for seniors in the community, and her desire to help the elderly has enhanced her knowledge in healthcare and role as Director of Operations in Carestay.
