Episode 14: Guest Linda Skinner
Play • 38 min

March included a very special day, International Women's Day. This day inspired our host Krista Naugler to sit down with one of Canada's very own women of impact in the world of Child Life, Linda Skinner. Linda's career in Child Life began when the profession of child life and the role of the "play lady" was new and spanned over four decades. 
In this episode, Linda shares about three initiatives that had a huge impact on child life during her career. Plus, she highlights other women of impact in the field, three Canadians and a few other colleagues that she holds high regard for.
Did I mention that Linda was one of the leaders at the table when Basile, founder of KHLF and Upopolis asked what Canadian child life needed? She shares about this in the episode too.
