“I’d like to express my gratitude and thanks to Dona and the CSNN school for helping me to walk the path that I do. It has been a matter of choice and destiny to meet Dona at the CSNN booth in 2018 at the business fair event. I took the chance and at present, I am employed in the field, working for Taymount Canada Microbiome Health. I have lots to learn ahead in this type of work but I am happy to be a part of the important and promising field of gut flora transplant and the wonders it can achieve. Dona, thanks for letting me know about the job opportunity with Taymount Clinic when I start the Immunology advanced course. It was meant to happen and it seems you have been more than a mentor to me. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hugs to all of you over at CSNN Nanaimo and all the best in the future. Keep up the good work!”
