I grew up on a farm near Strathmore Alberta. I trained as a Radiation Therapist and worked at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre for 20 years before moving to Sundre with my family in 1997. After a short time working at the Sundre Hospital I came to work for the physicians in 2002. I am presently working with Dr. Foolen as her MOA. I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family, the outdoors ( camping, boating, fishing etc), and ‘crafts’ (lampworking, watercolor painting, knitting and quilting to name a few).
Dixi is a long time resident of Sundre and has raised her 3 children here. She has a background in pharmacy and also completed schooling for medical transcription and healthcare documentation. Outside work you can find her spending most of her time at the arena as a proud hockey mom. She enjoys being active, spending time with her friends and family, and is always up for an adventure!
