Candace Lahoda

Candace was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Treaty 6 territory. She deeply connects to her prairie roots and loves spending time fishing in Saskatchewan’s many majestic lakes. She graduated in 2010 from the Nursing Education Program of Saskatchewan with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. While working in northern and urban centres she has cared for patients in many different stages of life, from labour and delivery to end of life care. She is a proud Registered Nurse and currently works as an RN on the Neurosciences ward in Saskatoon. She finds nursing both challenging and rewarding, and thoroughly enjoys working as part of a team of diverse and dedicated healthcare professionals. She strongly believes in the power of the collective, is active in her union on a provincial level, and currently serves on the SUN Constitution, Bylaws, & Resolutions Committee. 

Candace has begun volunteer work at several local non-profit organizations, and is exploring avenues to further her community engagement. She is elated to participate in the Next Up 2016-17 program, and to learn new skills that will further her ability to make a positive contribution to society.
