Director of Communications
Cadence has always been interested in providing holistic care to those dealing with chronic illnesses and complex care needs. After graduating from the University of Prince Edward Island, Cadence’s passion for palliative care developed in her work as a medical surgical nurse. As a home-care nurse with the Victoria Order of Nurses, Cadence cared for families in the Halifax area, educated colleagues in palliative care, and was integral in planning safe and efficient service delivery in response to the recent pandemic. Cadence is a certified hospice and palliative care nurse at Hospice Halifax where she is a leader in compassion as a means of facilitating well-being for patients, families and the Halifax Hospice team. She values the creation of supportive environments for those she serves through empathy, listening, learning, and strong work-relationships. Cadence believes community, hospice and palliative care has a significant effect on universal public health and looks forward to its continued growth.
