Lucy is a Clinical Nurse Specialist in our Obstetrics Department. She graduated in 1985 from McMaster University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and from the University of Toronto in 1990 with a Master’s of Science in Nursing. She worked as a manager at Georgetown Hospital for a number of years and then a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) at William Osler from 2002 to 2010 when she moved to Headwaters as a CNS.
Lucy has spearheaded programs at Headwaters that other hospitals look to model after. This includes increasing skin to skin time with babies and their parents, particularly in the operating room and recovery room as well as using specific strategies to manage pain in newborns undergoing painful procedures like blood sampling.
In addition to her role at Headwaters, she is representative on the College of Family Physicians of Canada Maternal Newborn Committee
, member of Ontario Provincial Implementation Committee of Baby Friendly Initiative and on the Provincial Quality Based Procedure (QBP) clinical expert panel for the Low Risk Birth QBP.
Working tirelessly to strengthen our culture of collaboration, Lucy, values teamwork and continuous learning. She is quick to share her knowledge with anyone that could benefit from it. Lucy was recently featured on the Lifetime of Love Doula Services blog.
