Marilee obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in the Philippines, where she worked in a variety of different hospital units including surgical, maternity, and emergency. Since arriving to Canada, she first achieved her license as a LPN and then as a Registered Nurse.
As a Health Care Assistant Program instructor at Drake Medox College, she most enjoys teaching Mental Health Concepts, Therapeutic Communication Strategies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Clinical Practical Skills.
Working both as a nurse and an educator at the same time is a blessing for Marilee, and a great advantage for her students who are able to benefit from her current real world experience. She encourages anyone who is interested in becoming a Health Care professional to join her class to experience a fun learning environment and a great education!
