Collen Earle, RN
Hello – I’m Colleen.
I have lived in Brockville for 29 yrs. I’ve been a nurse for 27 yrs. My nursing experience has been primarily in paediatrics. I have always had a child at my side, since I was 11yrs old! I am drawn to them, and them to me. My heart is filled when I’m taking care of someone. I love to be around babies and children and gain strength each time I see a woman give birth!
I recently told someone that I have likely changed a diaper every day, since I was a kid!
I have 2 adult children that I home educated, and who now live on their own. My daughter will be married in September 2022. My favourite things are my kids, our family, and our church family. I spend as much time as possible with these people.
Two quotes I live by are:
‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’ – Martin Luther King Jr.
‘Children have more need of models than of critics.’ – Carolyn Coates
