Professionally, she is also affiliated with Alberta Health Services in Alberta, Canada. Alberta Health Services is the single health authority for the Canadian province of Alberta. It is responsible for promoting wellness and providing health care services across the province.

In regards to her educational background, Sydney earned her nursing degree from Elmira College in Elmira, New York in 2017. “I chose a school for its hockey program and fell in love with the nursing program. After graduation, I took a position at a hospital upstate, but quickly realized I was able to come home to the farm. I took my NCLEX and completed the licensing process for New York State and started the process of transferring it to CARNA. With the decision to come back to Canada, I found a full-time position at a rural facility within driving distance from the farm and was blessed that my manager was an advocate for me coming home to work. Because of this, the transition time between licenses was very smooth” she stated. 

Being a collegiate student-athlete forced Sydney to love and respect the career she was studying to be apart of. It was a difficult commitment as she was fully committed to both her hockey team and her nursing studies. It allowed her to appreciate teamwork both on and off the ice. She believes that the high expectations of her coach and the heavy demand of the nursing department have allowed her to be successful. “My Papa told me if I love what I do, I will never work a day in my life. I love nursing! I love how challenging it is, I love that I am always learning, and I love helping people. Providing quality care while helping families through difficult times is what makes me go the extra mile. I believe the extra mile is a characteristic of a successful nurse” as stated by Sydney. 

Having grown up with a family of nurses, she has three amazing aunts who are so supportive of her career and for that, she is forever grateful. “But my little sister made me do it. When she was eight years old, she was diagnosed with Rasmussen Encephalitis, a rare neurological inflammatory disease. She endured test after test and multiple treatments of corticosteroids to aid in the inflammation process of the disease. At the age of twelve, she underwent a left hemispherectomy and, after countless hours of therapy, has been literally living with half a brain since. When she was hospitalized, there were some amazing nurses. Her favorite ones were the ones who went out of their way to make her day a little better. That’s what I wanted to do. I wanted to be able to make someone a tiny bit happier and allow their family that feeling of safety and comfort. My little sister made me become a nurse and also the nurses she had at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta.” she stated.

When asked what motivates her at the start of each day, Sydney answered that it is working in a hospital that is home to a nursing staff that treats their patients like family members and cares about the other nurses they work with. Of course, she is motivated by the patients and their families as well. She strives to make a difference in their lives by doing little things that can have a big impact, such as involving the family in the patient’s care or advocating for a patient’s wishes to their healthcare team. 

As for her professional achievements, she earned the Spirit Award of Excellence Nomination for Teamwork in 2018. She has also volunteered with Work the World in Peru in 2016, volunteering her time in an oncology hospital. Currently, she is researching postpartum depression and learning more about that in order to implement a new screening method for postpartum patients.
