Chelsey has been practising as a Registered Practical Nurse since 2020. Her experience includes long-term care and retirement home nursing. Since becoming part of the Aegis Medical team, she has become very passionate about helping people with substance use disorder achieve their goals. She prides herself on exceeding patients' expectations, offering support and gain the trust of our patients.
While working with Aegis Medical, I have become trained in administering Naloxone and the Sublocade injection. I am also BCLS certified. I look forward to obtaining other addiction certifications in order to provide the best possible care for our patients.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with family and friends.
