ZENA, YOUR RECEPTIONIST
Hello/Kwe/Hola, my name is Zena and I am the receptionist at Wabano’s dental clinic. I am truly blessed to be able to work surrounded by my culture. Even though I have lived in many great places in the world, including South America and the USA, nothing holds as dear to my heart as my traditional territory of Conne River Miawpukek First Nations in Newfoundland.
I enjoy helping others and making new connections. You can easily find me wearing the brown vest at the dental reception desk on the Earth floor.
