Today one of my good colleagues retired from her part-time job at our hospital. The PFT department is thankful for her 20 years of service. While she held various roles over the years, I have known her for the past three years at Markham-Stouffville Hospital’s PFT lab. Her journey in becoming a respiratory therapist is truly inspiring, which you can read in this interview: https://respiratory.blog/carolyngreer/ .
Without hesitation, I can recognize her as our most patient-care focused clinician who also highly valued team effort in operating a quality lab. While I will miss working with her, I’ll stay in touch with her. When I was considering to join the board of directors at Respiratory Therapy Society of Ontario, she was one of the supporters who encouraged my involvement. Many more words of wisdom that were shared on our way to Tim Horton’s.
Carolyn, thank you for your years of service. Glad to call you a friend.
