Louise Cassidy, Vancouver Site

Our ray of sunshine all the way from Hamilton, Ontario, this former competitive trampolinist left home for undergrad in Halifax before returning to The Hammer  for medical school. She then set her sights on the West Coast and arrived in Vancouver to join the UBC EM family.  Louise is a social butterfly and lucky for her co-residents she is always down for a good chat and the tendency to say “yes” to any adventure. This year she is living in Auckland, New Zealand completing a fellowship in Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine with the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust where she is flying on helicopters and providing prehospital care. Her happy place is with friends in the mountains and on her days off she can be found backcountry skiing, biking, and camping.
