Get to know the nominees that will be up for elections at our AGM this year. Please see the brief biographies .
Elections will be 2 year terms for:
1) Director-At-Large (Intent, to be appointed Treasurer) Nominees are:
Hello CSCT members. My name is Karen Schaus. I have been an active member of the Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists for 36 years.
I was the NB Provincial President/Director before being elected the CSCT Treasurer. I am proud to have held the position of CSCT Treasurer for 23 consecutive years.
In 2004, I approached the federal government for funding to finance the development of a new online national exam using interactive videos. After many months of working with Irene Williamson (former CSCT Education Director) we were successful in obtaining government grants totaling $148,000.
Since taking on the role of the CSCT Treasurer 23 years ago, the national dues have increased by only $15. This is a result of receiving federal government funding and the diligence of the CSCT Board of Directors to adhere to the budgets that are presented annually.
I am currently a member of the CSCT Executive committee, Strategic planning committee, Canadian Cardiovascular Congress Advisory committee, History committee and the CSCT Congress committee.
It would be my honor to serve as your Treasurer for another 2 year term.
Natalie Watkins has been a Registered Cardiology Technologist (RCT) since 2013 and has been working in the field of cardiology since 2008. Currently, Natalie divides her working hours between the local hospital as a RCT and as an administrative assistant, with a focus on billing, for a private cardiology clinic. Natalie is passionate about her profession and has become an advocate for the role of RCTs within the healthcare framework both locally and provincially (became Registrar for OSCT in 2017). With her unique background in both cardiology and administration, Natalie would love to bring her passion to the national level by becoming a member of the CSCT.
2) Education Director - Nominee :
Emily Coffey is an ambitious 25 year old Registered Cardiology Technologist residing in Windsor, Ontario and currently works at a cardiology clinic in Chatham, Ontario. Emily has been a diligent member of the CSCT Exam Committee as the Exam Administrator for the past 1.5 years. She has also taken on the role of Assistant Education Director, working closely with Jackie Goodtrack to meet all of the CSCT members' education needs. Emily looks forward to the possibility of stepping into the role of CSCT Education Director at the upcoming AGM.
