Dasha A. Johnston, RN

Dasha A. Johnston, RN at Genesis Fertility Centre in Vancouver

Hi there, my name is Dasha and I am the newest nurse to join Genesis Fertility Centre. I graduated from University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2010. Most of my past work experience has been primarily based in pediatrics. I worked in a pediatric post anesthetic care unit at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta from 2010-2012.

In 2012 I met my wonderful husband and made the transitions to the pediatric intensive care unit at the B.C. Children’s Hospital. I have a great passion for working with children and their families. Although my work in the PICU at times may have been emotionally difficult, it was extremely fulfilling.

I have decided to make the transition to Genesis Fertility Centre in April 2014. I am now privileged to be working at Genesis with such a great team of professionals dedicated to couples who are ready to embark on their journey into parenthood.

In my spare time, I love to explore the outdoors by either hiking, biking or kayaking with my husband and my two dogs. However, I have recently suffered a biking accident during which I badly broke my arm and severed my ulnar nerve (so no more biking for me!). I am currently in the process of recovery.

Meet Us Mondays: Lori Williams, RN, Nurse Manager & In-Charge of Sperm Retrieval Program

Lori Williams, RN, Genesis Fertility Centre

The Genesis family has many touching and compelling stories to tell, but Lori Williams, a registered nurse, nurse manager and in-charge of the Sperm Retrieval Program at our clinic, has a special and personal one to share. Her struggles with her husband’s cancer is one that parallels many of our patients.

Lori’s personal experiences and strength translates into her dedication to help patients at our clinic. We hope that you will find her path to Genesis an inspirational tale.

————————————————————————————————————

Hi! My name is Lori and I work as a Registered Nurse at the Genesis Fertility Centre.  Prior to working at Genesis, I worked for more than ten years at Vancouver General Hospital – first as a vascular/general surgery nurse then as a critical care nurse in the Post Anesthetic Care Unit.

I love my job and I truly believe it has helped shape me into the person I am now.  It is one of the few careers that give you intimate access to extraordinary stories of others’ personal lives. I have met World War II heroes, inventors, survivors of unimaginable circumstances as well as star-crossed lovers.

My career has also exposed me to the varying limits of human capacity and has taught me that regardless of age, race or status, no one is exempt from life’s curve balls.

Meet Us Mondays: Shay Arejola, RN and PGD Nurse Coordinator

Hi I’m Shay. I am one of the Registered Nurses and the Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) Nurse Coordinator at Genesis Fertility Centre.

A career in nursing wasn’t always something I imagined doing. It worked out well for me since I found out that my real passion was in helping people, although I wasn’t always sure in what capacity I should contribute to society. Growing up, I was constantly exposed to the business world so it was only natural for me to assume that a career in business was my destiny. I started down that road with marketing and sales and later on aspired to be a financial planner to help people achieve their financial goals. Needless to say, I never got there.

After vacationing to Hawaii one year, that career path didn’t feel right. There must’ve been something in the Mai Tai’s they serve you in Hawaii, but when I came back to work that year, I had a whole new perspective. All of a sudden, I needed something more fulfilling and more altruistic. Whether due to the Mai Tai’s or something else, I’m forever grateful as it was at that time, right after my trip, that I decided to do a sudden 180 and begin my journey into nursing. It was the best decision I had made thus far.

Meet Us Mondays: Deborah Fergusson, RN and Out of Town Patient Program Coordinator

 

Deborah Fergusson, RN, Genesis Fertility Centre

Deborah Fergusson, RN, Genesis Fertility Centre

Hi, I’m Deborah and I’m one of the registered nurses here at Genesis. In addition to my other responsibilities, I help coordinate the Out-of-Town Patient Program.

I guess you could say I’ve lived my life in many chapters, from backpacking through Europe and tree planting in the north (where I met my husband), to raising our four children in East Vancouver and starting an award winning health care gaming studio, each an amazing adventure in its own right. I received my BSN from UBC in 1992, and outside of work you might find me skiing, running a half marathon, traveling, dancing, or playing chauffeur for my kids.

My current adventure has me building on a 12-year nursing career, which has given me the opportunity to work with thousands of families bringing children into the world (as a labour and delivery nurse). This path led me to Genesis and I couldn’t be happier that it did. It’s a real pleasure to work in an innovative environment committed to excellence, alongside such a compassionate and dedicated team of professionals. I love my work: the chance to be part of something so meaningful in the lives of our patients is both an honour and a privilege for which I am grateful.

Meet Us Mondays: Helen Ortojan, RN

Helen Ortojan

Helen Ortojan, RN, Genesis Fertility Centre

Hi, my name is Helen. I’m one of the nurses here in Genesis. My family and I came to Canada in 2005 (from the Philippines). I’ve worked so hard to become an OB-GYN but gave it up hoping to give my family a better future. I was asked so many times if I have regrets, my answer is always “no”. For us, Canada is a refreshing start of our journey. We had our share of struggles settling in but we are so blessed that transition has been quite easy and support is flowing.

My Journey to Genesis Fertility Centre

In my first few years in Canada, I worked as a nurse in a nursing home. Although I enjoyed the job and gained friends, I knew deep inside me I was looking for something else. I started searching for a job related to Maternity or OB specialty, and that was when I found Genesis Fertility Centre.

Since working at Genesis in April of 2013, my true journey has begun. I know that this is it, and I feel that I’m in the right place. The training period was quite challenging but working with people who value team work is helpful. Dr. Kashyap is a good mentor and is appreciative of each person’s worth.

How I can relate with patients

I’m happy that I have the opportunity to work in one of the best fertility centers in the country and helping patients to achieve their dreams of become parents. Having three miscarriages myself, I can empathize with them.  By being an Egg Donor/Surrogacy Program Coordinator, I am able to understand the whole essence of this job and am able to do it more effectively.

Lastly, being in an environment of dedicated staff who share the same vision as you is refreshing. I can say at the end of the day, being at Genesis doesn’t just feel like a job, but a personal life accomplishment.
