Sheena Howard is a full-scope primary care registered nurse who was born and raised in Ontario. She graduated from Queen’s University School of Nursing, 2003, and began her career in Northern BC on an isolated island as a public health and primary care advanced practice nurse. Through a social justice lens, she worked alongside the community consisting of indigneous and non-indigenous people, to improve access to community healthcare, notably creating the first free birth control and prenatal group clinics, a model for prenatal patients in rural BC.

We start by discussing her discovery of nursing through a library pamphlet and go on to talk about:

  • Nursing in the small community of Haida Gwaii
  • Her love for primary care nursing
  • Supporting LGBTQ+ patients and providing safe spaces
  • What love-led leadership is and its six characteristics
