Having just started in September 2021, Emma is brand new to PARA and is here to help with any and all member queries.
In her off time, Emma loves to travel and has spent the last four years travelling and living overseas. Some of her favourite places include Greece, Croatia, Italy and Australia, where she resided for the last two and a half years; she is fearful of her first Canadian winter back! Emma loves dogs (ALL of them) and has a three-year-old Greyhound whose photos take up 99% of her phone storage.
Dr. Michael Taylor
Hello! My name is Michael Taylor, and I am a PGY3 in Emergency Medicine at the University of Alberta. I am a graduate of the University of Alberta’s combined MD/MBA program with a background in health systems and quality improvement research. As a current residency program committee member, past MD curriculum representative, previous SIM coordinator, and previous music teacher, I have developed a passion for leadership and education in various ways. PARA’s VPLE position seemed like the perfect fit! I sought out an executive position with PARA because like many of you, I want to be informed. I strongly believe that information can be our most important tool to enact change and improve the lives of those around us. I hope to work closely with the Leadership & Education Committee to champion general and specific advocacy that is relevant to the dynamic, systemic needs of all PARA members. Moreover, I plan to advocate both internally and publicly for continued collective efforts in whatever way that I can. Outside of PARA business / clinical duties, I enjoy good food, scenic views, camp fires, lake life, skiing, and making time for family or friends far and wide.
CURRENTLY ON LEAVE
Ravneet is the staff lead for the Nomination and Awards Committee, where she oversees the distribution of awards to resident physicians, physician preceptors and allied staff, as well as administering conference sponsorship awards.
As a Member Services Coordinator, Ravneet works in the areas of Agreement Compliance, excess calls, organizes PARA’s half-day presentations and oversees the Taxi Reimbursement Program. If you have any questions on any of the above, please reach out to her!
When Ravneet is not working, she loves spending time with her son and husband. She loves going for long walks (only when it’s warm outside), traveling and watching Netflix.
Dr. Chloe Lim
My name is Chloe, a second-year internal medicine resident from UofC. I ran for VP CIR because I believe in work-life balance despite our busy schedule as resident physicians! My goal is to promote wellness in many shape and forms within all resident physician cohorts, regardless of specialty, school, and interests. I hope to introduce new forms of wellness including potential sponsorship opportunities with various vendors to support resident physicians with different interests. As the COVID-19 pandemic is slowly leaving our province, I also hope to focus on new in-person events to promote interpersonal wellness. I am always open to discussing other wellness initiatives and happy to meet fellow residents. Feel free to reach out any time
