Sabrina Lewis graduated with a diploma in Health Information Management from NSCC. She says that if you had asked her five years ago where she imagined herself, her current life would definitely be a surprise.
April 1, 2010 was her last day of work in Customer Service. She decided that the situation should become an opportunity, and that going back to school to receive more education was her best chance. Sabrina attended career planning sessions at the Dartmouth YMCA Employment Centre, and realized that she wanted to go into healthcare in a role that would help people, but avoid blood.
As part of her program, Sabrina participated in “Service Learning” where students give back to the community. Each year, they raise funds for the Bone Marrow Transplant Comfort Fund at the QEII Hospital to support patients and their families in the difficult times of illness.
All in all, Sabrina says the last few years have changed her life for the better. “I realize now that when they say ‘you can do anything you put your mind to’ that they are right!”
