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.
Adrienne Hill brings a wealth of communications experience to PARA with over 15 years working in the field. She is also a trained graphic designer and as such her passion is bringing together well planned communications and creative visuals for the best possible result.
In her spare time, she enjoy cooking, spending time with her family and cuddling with her two dogs, a Boston Terrier (Lulu) and French Bulldog (George).
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
