Meet the Team
Tina Canada - RN, Certified Diabetes Educator
Tina is a registered nurse who joined OSF Holy Family Medical Center in 2015. She says she has felt at home since joining OSF and the Monmouth community, and feels it is her calling to help patients manage their diabetes.
“I love that Holy Family Medical Center providers, staff and patients work together to improve the health of our community, and I love that I get to see the compassion of my co-workers each and every day,” she said. “We have a lovely facility, a dedicated and caring staff and a wonderful community here in Monmouth.”
Tina grew up in Karnak, a small town of about 700 people in rural southern Illinois. She now lives in rural Monmouth with her husband, Mark, who is a pastor at Fairview Center United Methodist Church, and their 18-year-old cat. Tina and Mark have a daughter, Megan, who lives in Chicago. They also have three great-nieces.
Tina earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, and she holds a Wound Care Certification from the National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy (NAWCO).
In her free time, she enjoys reading, counted cross stitching, cooking and baking and designing quilts with the Fairview Center quilters. She is a tireless church volunteer who is involved in everything from choir activities to serving on the board of United Methodist Motorsports Ministry.
Jamie Weyant - Diet & Nutrition Educator
Jamie grew up in Quincy, Illinois, but loves living in Berwick now. As she puts it, "I love the friendliness of the people in the local community. I feel that people help one another and communicate well with each other."
She graduated from Western Illinois University in 2001 with her bachelor's degree and completed her dietetic internship program at Iowa State University. She returned to WIU and completed her master's degree in Education and Interdisciplinary Studies in 2008. In May 2013 she became a Certified Diabetes Educator.
Jamie started working at OSF Holy Family in 2001. "I love working for OSF HealthCare because I wholeheartedly support our Mission 'to serve persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life.' I love working here with a job that allows variety - inpatient, outpatient, management, community, grant writing, and being a part of the team at OSF Diabetes Care. The dietary staff is a wonderful group of people with excellent culinary skills, customer service skills, teamwork, and dedication. I could not ask for a better place to work."
When she isn't serving the patients of OSF Holy Family, Jamie enjoys spending time with her children, Owen and Raine.
She also enjoys reading, fishing, shopping, traveling and talking on the phone with her family in Quincy.
