For the past 30 years I have been working in nephrology nursing, most recently with a focus on peritoneal dialysis. My initial nursing education was in London, England. I graduated from the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada with a Masters in Nursing (1991) and then completed the Nurse Practitioner programme at the same university (1995). I have my certification in nephrology nursing from the Canadian Nurses Association. For the past 14 years I have also been Editor of the CANNT Journal (Journal of the Canadian Association of Nephrology Nurses and Technologists). Currently I am a nurse practitioner in nephrology working on the in-patient nephrology ward at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada.
