Pinay makes it to 'Business in Vancouver Forty under 40'
VANCOUVER - A Filipina nurse made it to “Business in Vancouver 2010 Forty under 40” list, a recognition of British Columbia's up and coming business stars for more than 20 years.
Marilyn Senador was a former nurse at the Vancouver General Hospital who came to Canada in 1999.
After working for more than 5 years, she saw a business opportunity for patients needing care even after they were discharged.
She then set up Saltgrass Health Incorporated, which provides nursing care to hospitals, nursing homes, seniors’ facilities and private residents.
Senador has also established 2 group homes for people with brain injuries.
The Pinay nurse also volunteered at the Multicultural Helping House Society during her free time.
The awards night will happen on February 1, 2011. Balitang America
