My name is Sadhna and I was born in Toronto, Ontario. My family and I moved shortly after to the small town of Whitby, Ontario. Growing up in a smaller community outside Toronto, I have learned many valuable life lessons that has always taught me to see the good in others.
I am often described as an ambitious, dedicated, compassionate, and amicable individual. My passion for helping others has led me to pursue a career as a Registered Practical Nurse. I primarily work with individuals suffering from severe mental health disorders within both the forensic and general populations. Throughout my nursing career I have had many notable achievements such as earning my RPN Operating Room Certificate as well as having the opportunity to teach within Centennial College’s School of Community and Health Studies. I am also currently working towards obtaining my Bachelor’s of Allied Health Science Degree with a Minor in Forensic Psychology through the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. When I am not studying or working I enjoy living an active, balanced, and healthy lifestyle that I strive to share with those around me. You can find me at the gym, practising yoga, at my favourite coffee shop with my nose buried in a book, exploring new cultures through travel, as well as spending time with loved ones.
I have also enjoyed volunteering with many organizations such as St. John Ambulance as a Youth Leader/Non-Commissioned Officer throughout my adolescence, The Princess Margaret Hospital, and most recently The Shoebox Project within Durham Region. As a finalist for Miss Canada 2018, I aspire to use this platform to continue to advocate for mental health and addiction awareness.
