When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A lawyer — until (years later) I realized I'd be a terrible lawyer because I wouldn't be able to set aside my own beliefs if they conflicted with those of my clients. So, I went into finance and project management instead.
What motivates you to do what you do?
My children and my future grandchildren. I want to do my small part to help the health system work better for them and for all Canadians.
What are you looking forward to most about the Partnership Conference?
Getting the chance to talk to people about our national public consultation, A Healthy Dialogue, and to invite them to join the conversation about the future of health care.
