For the many who pass through her office each day, Mary Anderson is a friend, a confidant, a counsellor and a nurse.
Practising out of the Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital since 1987, the Havre Boucher native has seen a lot. But her love of learning and passion for health care and the people she serves here has sustained her.
She is the pioneer of nurse practitioners on the island where only 10 exist. She serves an invaluable roll, offering a unique, versatile skill set.
