From the moment I became involved with BCNU in 2008, Adriane was warm, welcoming, and approachable. Adriane has walked the walk as a floor nurse and has firsthand knowledge of the violence and other issues faced by today's nurses, including working in and through a
pandemic. Adriane possesses extensive knowledge and experience at the regional and
provincial levels. She has served this union as Executive Councillor OH&S and Mental Health.
Adriane was elected as Vice President in February 2022. In this role, she has been the political action lead, holding rallies and lobbing all levels of government on the nursing shortage crisis, and championing the HR & E portfolio. She is experienced and knowledgeable in governance and leadership, and this drives her exceptional ability to respond and act in moments of crisis, making key decisions with effective resolutions that demonstrate her deep understanding of the issues and stakeholders involved. Adriane is dependable. When the current president was unavailable, Adriane stepped in confidently to fill the role with her vast professional experience and knowledge.
Adriane is always engaged and genuinely willing to listen. She takes the time to get to know
you, as a person, and how working conditions actively affect you. She is a strong and passionate advocate who supports you fully and completely, irrespective of your nursing designation. The integrity, knowledge, experience, accountability, and passion she brings to the role of President will be an asset to each of you, and each of us.
