Michelle Currie, RN – Operations Manager
In May 2014, Michelle Currie joined the team at PRAXES as operations manager bringing her unique experience and passion for telemedicine to the position. Prior to joining PRAXES, Currie worked as a registered nurse and developed a strong interest in telemedicine after a neck injury sidelined her from providing direct patient care. An opportunity to work on a chronic disease management telemedicine project materialized with Capital Health District Authority and Atlantic Health Sciences and Currie delved into this project for five years. Through this experience she truly “learned how technology could be a platform to deliver clinical services and care to people no matter where they were.”
