Hello, my name is Robyn, I am a member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation from Fort Chipewyan, Alberta. I am a passionate RN and entrepreneur. My company is called Medika North, my team and I would love to meet with you. We offer drug and alcohol testing, health screening, health surveillance and workplace wellness programs. I come into Occupational Health with an extensive background, starting off as an RN in the hub of the oil sands at Suncor Energy in Fort McMurray, and from here my passion grew to care for our workforce where our families and loved ones make a living for us. I am looking for companies with the same ambitious goals. Medika North’s mission is to support employers in creating healthy employees and safe working environments through quality services, strategic planning, and comprehensive programs.
