Member Profiles

Vicki Tramer, Dental Assistant

Vicki Tramer is a dental assistant working in Regina. She worked for years in the private sector, before taking a job with the health region’s Advanced Dental Health Practices Program. “Before the pandemic we went out to daycares and community organizations, preschools, in the city and in rural areas, and gave people support and education,” she said. “We have a very unique and specialized service that we provide to the public. Our programming targets young children and school age children to give them and their parents guidance on how to have good oral health habits. I always find it satisfying to bridge the gap, because there are so many people who don’t have the means or the know-how to get to where they need to be with their oral hygiene. I find value in that.”

Chelsea Schlecter, Entrance Attendant

Chelsea Schlecter is an entrance attendant at a nursing home, and her role is one that was created by the pandemic, when the home was under lock down and visitors were only allowed in if a resident was on compassionate care. She said the uncertainty of the pandemic has made her job uncertain, too. “I started in October of last year and the job was posted until February 2022, but who knows? At this point it’s so hard to tell what’s going to come next.”

She said that now visitors are allowed to move more freely and the job has expanded. “At first when we opened back up it was only two visitors per resident and they had to be on a list unless someone was dying. In June or July, we started letting all visitors in, but we have to screen them. About a month ago it changed where masks weren’t mandatory for visitors anymore, but numbers got so bad again that it changed to where you have to wear a mask in common areas, but once you’re in a room, you don’t have to wear one.”

Member Profile - Diane Christenson

Diane Christenson is a staff scheduler, a role she moved into in June, after medical reasons left her unable to carry on with her work as a Continuing Care Assistant (CCA).  “I liked everything about being a CCA,” she said. “I loved it. I absolutely loved it. I liked working with the elderly, I like working with intellectually disabled people in the group homes. I was working with people and making a difference. That’s a big thing. It’s a very rewarding job.”

Member Profile - Selena Heglund - Unit Clerk
