My name is Ashley. I am a licensed practical nurse from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I volunteered at Long Way Home back in February of this year and noted the lack of medical staff in the community... and decided then that I wanted to come and help out. I have been a nurse for six years, and in the medical field for fifteen. I have worked in sports medicine, diagnostic imaging, surgery, mental health as well as in emergency. My goals here are to be able to assist in the event of any health emergencies, as well as to provide education to the staff, regarding health. I also hope that my presence here will be beneficial with the volunteers.
Long term, I would love to be able to work with the school to provide health education to the students themselves, and continue building a strong community with Long Way Home.
