I began my nursing career in 1982 and worked in pediatric oncology, rural nursing, and critical care. In 1992 I transitioned to hospital-based nursing education, and worked as a critical care educator for 5 years. After completing my MSN in 1997 I worked at Trinity Western University for 11 years and served as the Chair of the School of Nursing for six of those years. In 2007 I came to the University of British Columbia where I held a Canada Research Chair from 2010 to 2020. I now hold a Tier 1 Principal Research Chair in Palliative and End-of-Life Care.
