I am so lucky to call myself an RRT and be able to work in rural Manitoba, specializing in chronic disease management and smoking cessation. I love living on a farm with my husband and son. Living in the country is the best place to live and being able to work with so many great physicians and allied health specialties. What we have here in Morden is so unique and I am proud to be a part of it.
