A show that aims to give a platform for sharing ideas, perspectives and feelings in the wake of the Global COVID-19 pandemic. Interviews will feature local Guelphites as well as people living elsewhere around the world.

For this episode I interview Judy Stark, a resident in Long Term Care at The Village of Riverside Glen. Born and raised in Lachine Quebec, Judy shares her story of schooling and work, going from high school into Sir George Williams Secretarial School - she tried out nursing, but felt it wasn't a good fit, however her interest in the medical side of it combined with her secretarial skills, and she started out in the field of "Medical Transcription". Judy talks about a life of balancing working and raising her two sons, her 26 year as a working the front desk at a local Dentist office, and her recent transition to Long-Term Care and how important a person's attitude is in helping adjust. She also shares about her creative pursuits, writing children's stories. Thank you Judy for sharing your story with us!
