SAMANTHA

With a heart and soul as big as Northern Ontario where she lives, Samantha Therien stands next to the willow tree planted in 2009 honouring her grandmother. It was eight feet when planted, but now is 16 feet and leans a little to the left with the prevailing winds.

As a young person growing up, Samantha was always influenced deeply by her "meem", her grandmother who was a registered nurse and mother to four.

Samantha's family moved to the Lake of Bays area, 3 hours north of Toronto partly to be close to and  care for her grandmother. It is not surprising that this special bond has shaped her career and future.

Samantha recently graduated from Canadore College in North Bay as a Registered Practical Nurse. She currently works on call at Muskoka Landing as a nurse, caring for elderly residents.

SAMANTHA FUN FACT: She will get back to us on that! There are so many!
