Michelle Plenderleith

Michelle’s favourite things about her job are three-fold: 

  • Her coworkers, including nurses, physicians, and medical device reprocessing, administration and housekeeping staff
  • The patients she has the opportunity to see and talk to, and helping them navigate the health-care system 
  • How fast paced her role is, and that it changes day to day so it’s never boring
