St. Paul’s Hospital is where Leslie used to work.  She knows Dr. Grant very well, has worked with the ICU many times and is proud to share this article raising awareness about organ donation.  This is very near and dear to Leslie’s heart as she is now Organ Donation Specialist as well as a Hospital Organ Donation Coordinator for Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC.  Please take a second to read!  Thanks!

Heading to Tempe Arizona for work and then some R&R


Heading out of town June 14th to take a course down in Tempe Arizona.  Cheryl is coming along for some well deserved R&R.  While I will be in a course for 4 days, Cheryl will be tanning by the pool in over 100 degree heat!  No bikes for this trip but hopefully a trip to the Grand Canyon will be on the agenda.  Good news though, we are heading out on July 9th for about 2 weeks on a road trip.  Finally, we will get out.  It’s been a long few months since I, Leslie started my new career with BC Transplant in organ donation back in January.  Have not really had a break since January 16th.  I will be doing a post on my 6th month anniversary with BCTS when I get signed off of probation mid July.

Stay tuned as even when traveling via plane we still make it an adventure!

Initiative Project: Raising Awareness of BC Transplants


This is where Leslie works now.  BC Transplant. 

After two months of intensive training with another 6 more to go at least.  Whenever I may have a doubt as to why I took this incredible yet stressful job something like this video comes across my computer and I am reminded why I am devoting myself to organ donation. Not a top notch quality video but it’s the thought that counts!

For my English class I had to do this project which has now become VERY near and dear to my heart. Thank you to Tyler Smith and BC Transplants.

My continuing story and journey training to learn the part of an organ Donation Specialist which in turn I also will learn to be an In Hospital Organ Donation Coordinator.  Part of the training is networking, traveling to shadow other coordinators and meet colleagues in the industry.  I know tough life but it’s not as easy as it looks. The below video I just think is so appropriate in more ways than one.
