Achievements & Accomplishments:

There is no surprise that Madeline is still in the Health Services field.  One could say she is a Health Services Professional Extraordinaire because of all the areas she has covered and the number of years she has spent in the field. She left Jamaica at age 16 for the United Kingdom and eventually pursued studies in Nursing, where she became a Registered Nurse. After five years as a State Registered Nurse and Midwife in England and Scotland, the healthcare practitioner packed her bags in 1965 and headed to Canada. She said, “Meeting people from all parts of the world in the five years in Europe piqued my interest and I decided I wanted to travel and see the world. One of my pals moved to Toronto and invited me to come here first and spend some time with her”.  While vacationing in the city, she met someone, fell in love and got married a few months later.  After being in the Nursing field for a while, she decided to expand her education by studying Teaching Techniques and then followed that by acquiring a Degree in Sociology from York University.  She still had a thirst for broadening her knowledge, so she pursued a Management Certificate in Business and also another in Dispute Resolution.
