Meet Us Monday: Patricia Friesen, Nursing Assistant

Patricia Friesen, nursing assistant at Genesis Fertility Centre in Vancouver

 

My name is Patty and I have been working at Genesis for over 5 years. I am originally from Chile, but have lived in Canada for over 30 years.

My nursing background has been mainly Critical Care at Vancouver General Hospital, before moving on to work as a Nurse Administrator at a rural hospital on Vancouver Island.  After taking time off to stay home with my daughters and living in Tokyo for 3 years, we moved back to Steveston.  My experience of helping my Mom with her dialysis and her palliative care prompted me to get back to nursing.

I have embraced the challenge of working in such an exciting field such as Fertility Medicine. It gives me such joy when I get to talk on a personal level to new Moms and Dads who are so grateful their dream of a family has come true. I feel so proud to belong to a team so dedicated to helping create families.

When I’m not working here I like going to Zumba classes, walking our dog at the Steveston boardwalk and travelling when time permits!
