Full Text: 2011 was a very busy year. I first joined CANNT in 2010 and then volunteered to be the technical representative for the 2011 CANNT conference organizing committee. This was a much bigger task then I had imagined and very rewarding. I worked with a great group of people and had an excellent time being part of the organizing committee. I have spent the last 18 years working in dialysis and the last nine years up to the present time working in the Southern Alberta Renal Program for Alberta Health Services.

It was a huge surprise and honour to be nominated for the Excellence in Technical Award and to be selected as the recipient of this award. I enjoyed the challenges of working in dialysis these past 18 years. When I first started in dialysis, I was working as a Biomedical Engineering Technologist in Regina, Saskatchewan. The challenges moving into dialysis were a huge change from what I was doing previously. The move has been very rewarding for me. The dialysis community is full of wonderful people who enjoy sharing their knowledge and helping others. I enjoy working within this multidisciplinary team and helping the staff get the most from the equipment that we use every day.
