Jhennipher Pasteur, RPN
I graduated from the Registered Practical Nursing program in 2009 from Conestoga College and graduated from the Medical Aesthetician program for nurses in 2014 from Centennial College. I have experience in a number different health care settings such as hospital, rehabilitation, long term care and retirement. I have been with Passport Health since January 2015. It has been a joy to interact with various travellers, from the experienced ones ready to take on the world, to the new travellers eager to take their first trip. It is a pleasure for me to make sure each and every traveller is protected and aware, a healthy traveller equals a fun trip!
“Friendly personnel. Was given list of vaccines I needed for protection at my destination. I accepted some and declined others. i.e. No pressure. Administration wise appointment times were very flexible and I received e-mail reminders regarding appointments.”
“Sandra was very knowledgeable and understanding when I told her I had a history of fainting from needles! She was very professional and took the time to explain everything to myself and my fiance, Brandon. We felt very comfortable with her advice and now feel safe for our trip! Thank you Sandra!”

“Had a wonderful experience at the Kitchener clinic with Sandra. She was super helpful and made sure I was well educated on all the vaccines recommended for my travel destination. She answered all my questions in an easy to understand manner, and I felt at ease when deciding which vaccines I would be receiving. I would recommend this clinic to any family and friends looking to travel and will be returning for future vaccines/travel medication.”
“Super personable nurse who made me (a chicken) feel very comfortable. She was very knowledgeable and sweet.”
“There were 5 clients at 7:30AM to receive Yellow Fever vaccination. Sandra was fantastic, took each client in order they arrived.

Thank you so much Beatrix, we are so glad we went to Passport Health! Once in the office we met Sandra. Sandra was very thourough, patient and informative. We went with a family of 4 who all needed different things and all have different health and allergy concerns. She was very organized and super friendly!
