Marilee Sinlao


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!

Success Story

I had a fantastic experience at Drake Medox College, as I found the instructors very knowledgeable, the quality of the training rooms to be so realistic to actual facilities and the Drake staff incredibly helpful and friendly. I now feel more than capable of taking the right steps to achieve my goal in becoming a health care assistant and building a great career for myself...I would recommend them to all my family and friends. I now look forward to starting a new and exciting career. Thank you Drake Medox College!
