What would you like people to know about the Dr. Peter Centre?
Just what I tell them - This is a wonderful and amazing place. The staff here are tight and our experiences change our lives and the people we provide services to. I knew from the first year I worked here I was exactly where I was supposed to be.
What would you like people to know about HIV and AIDS?
It’s a compromised immune system and that’s it. It never even crosses my mind to ever worry about becoming ill or contracting the virus, and I have worked here for 13 years. I feel privileged to have been given the name "Mother Earth", and that I get to spend my days giving and receiving hugs - how lucky am I?
