Earlier this year Sister Xaveria made one of those good hires.  Gertrude joined the Pharmacy Staff after finishing a 3 year Pharmacy Technician course.  She always has a big smile on her face and is always helpful when called on.  The Dispensary is running better now with Gertrude and her assistant Agnes than when there were 3 people staffing it.

Gertrude grew up in Buea, the capital of the South West Province.  After attending Catholic primary and secondary schools she attended University and got her degree in Business Management.    Gertrude used her education and became a successful business woman working for several companies.  She traveled to a number of West African Countries representing the different companies she worked for.  I am sure Gertrude’s people skills enabled her to be a success in a field where not many women have traveled.

Gertrude always had an interest in Health care which prompted her to leave the business world and obtain her Pharmacy Technician Degree.  Njinikom is a much smaller community than she is used to living in but she is enjoying it here.  Gertrude main hobby is reading, particularly spiritual genre.  She is active in the hospital choir.  She is very proud of her 19 year old son who is following his mothers pursuit of education.  He is currently at University in Yaound√© working on his Masters Degree in Food Processing Engineering.

Gertrude will always be one of those valued people in any organization she is in a friend to all.
