PHIL Award Winner
October 2014
Ann has worked as a respiratory therapist for 30 years and has worked primarily in Adult
Critical Care for the last 20 years. She is a valued mentor, educator and resource for her
peers and other staff members. Most importantly, Ann is always a patient advocate.
Recently Ann played a vital role in helping to liberate a lung transplant recipient from the
vent. She spent countless hours encouraging and supporting this patient and the family
through the process. It is because of her dedication, compassion and commitment to her
patients that they are enjoying the gift of 'breathing easy'.

When Ann is not providing exemplary patient care, she enjoys cooking, walking and
spending time with family and friends.
