Annette Lievaart (Class of 2005)

Annette Lievaart grew up in Southern Alberta, graduating first from Taber Christian School in 2002 and then from Immanuel Christian High School in 2005. From there, Annette went on to NAIT, where she received her diploma in Respiratory Therapy in 2008.

After beginning her career in Edmonton, felt called to do something different. This started with a short-term trip to Tenwek Hospital in Bomet, Kenya, in 2010 and then a move as a long-term missionary there in 2013. Tenwek is a 330-bed hospital that provides care to patients in rural Kenya. As the only Respiratory Therapist (RT), Annette works with patients in the ICU, as well as providing training and education throughout the hospital and the region.

“I came to Tenwek as I was looking for a place that I could share the love of God with my patients, as well as fill a needed role. Tenwek was that fit.” The motto of Tenwek Hospital is “We Treat, Jesus Heals”, so in addition to her role as an RT, Annette is also a part of Bible studies and discipleship for the Kenyans in the training programs at Tenwek.
