Meet our Team

Meet Kylie: Registered Practical Nurse (RPN)

Each month we catch up to one of our 50+ team members in order to help our patients get to know them better. This month we sat down and chatted with Kylie, one of our hardworking and caring RPNs. We hope you enjoy our chat!

Kylie, what is your role with Winterberry?

I am a registered practical nurse and have been with Winterberry for just shy of two years.

I started my nursing career just at the start of COVID working in long term care before joing the Winterberry team.

What is the best part of being an RPN?

I love working collaboratively with my team members to help optimize patient care. It’s a privilege to teach others about their health and help them when they are at their most vulnerable. I find great satisfaction in helping improve a patient’s quality of life, in any big or small way. Even just making someone smile on a hard day is a big win for me!

What interested you about being an RPN? Why did you choose this career?

I have always loved the sciences and have a passion for caring for people – I am lucky to have found a perfect balance of both in nursing.

I also love to continue to learn and improve my knowledge/skills, which is necessary in health care specifically. I think it’s really special that we get to care for patients of all ages – from newborns to seniors, there’s always something new to learn!

What does an average day look like for you at Winterberry?

There’s rarely a dull day at Winterberry! Most days I am either busy seeing patients or running around the office assisting the rest of our wonderful team.

When you’re not at work, what are your hobbies and special interests?
I am an avid reader and am growing my own personal library. I love to cook, bake and spend my free time with family and friends  🙂
