Julie Hunter – Board Chair

Julie Hunter has been a Registered Nurse since 1993. She first worked in Texas and Connecticut in Paediatric Intensive Care Units. In 1996 she attained her Critical Care Paediatric Nursing certification (AACN). Once her family moved back to Ontario, in 2005 she transferred to Nephrology and specialized in caring for neonates to seniors in hemodialysis units. She worked in acute care centres as well as satellite units for 12 years. During this time she attained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Canadian Nurses Association Certification in Nephrology. While acquiring her Nurse Practitioner certification, Julie worked two weeks to month-long assignments in an advanced nursing role under physician medical directives in fly-in only Health Canada First Nation Nursing Clinics in Ontario. After a three month NP assignment in Attawapiskat, in summer 2017 Julie settled into her new Primary Care Nurse Practitioner role at the Lady Dunn Health Centre and Wawa Family Health Team. Her current learning objective is advancing her education and supportive role in all aspects of mental health for children, adolescents and young adults.

Julie is joined by her husband and youngest son. Her two daughters are attending post secondary schools in southern Ontario. She advocates for and achieves an active healthy lifestyle.
