The Pebble

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, May 7, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography
Change has dominated the health industry for the past forty years. Wrapped in an autobiography, this book will give you an inside perspective of this complex world, taking you in a circle from its growth in the sixties from a private to a public service in Canada to its return to a public/private organization. On this journey, the author describes her life as a nurse, teacher, administrator, consultant, and civil servant working in hospitals, government, health associations, and private industry in both Canada and the United States. The narrative will carry you through the challenges of nurse's training, educating various health care workers and managers, planning the construction of large and small health facilities, and working in two provincial governments. This narrative includes the personal challenges faced by the author in the latter part of the twentieth century, including divorce and remarriage, and having dyslexia and Lupus. The narrative takes you from the Maritimes to British Columbia with a brief overture in Arizona. This book should appeal to those familiar with the health industry and to those interested in understanding its complexity. It is a journey of change, resiliency and learning.
