Jeannie Mills

Jeannie Mills
Registered nurse
Pond Inlet
Age: 64
Family status: Divorced, with one grown child who lives in Houston, Texas. I live alone in the house I own in Pond Inlet.

Reason for running:

I have been a community health nurse in Nunavut for many years, and currently I am the home care nurse. There is a crisis in healthcare delivery in the communities in Nunavut and as a front-line health care worker I know what works, what doesn't, and what needs to happen to fix it. This last year I became so alarmed and frustrated with the situation, I felt compelled to run.
