Chanda McFadden

Where did you complete most of your training?
I completed both my Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work degrees through the University of Regina in Saskatchewan.

What is your special area of interest?
I have so many interests! The discipline of SW is broad and this profession has allowed me to experience many different learning opportunities. The majority of my practice has been in the areas of crisis response, women’s health and perinatal loss. However, working on the cardiac team has spiked a new interest in my life and I continue to learn and appreciate this important role each and every day!

What is the best thing about working in CHD?
Our team and our patients of course!

What is one thing that you think that all patients with CHD should know?
Our emotional health is just as important as our physical health. Social Work is available to support you!

If you weren't a social worker what would you be?
Professional food/wine taster….is that even a thing?

Do you have any interesting hobbies or talents or pets?
I am still searching for talent BUT I do consider myself to be quite adventurous and I love travelling! I am still paying off the debt I accredited while on a two year vacation.
