        Our Team

        Amelia Chapman

        I’m Amelia! I was born and raised in Sault Ste Marie. My very first job was at the Station Mall Drug Mart. I started when I was 16 working in the pharmacy along side two of the now owners, Joey and Frank. I worked in the pharmacy through high school and nursing school. Once I graduated from the Register Practical Nursing program at Sault College I went on to work at the Sault Area Hospital for 8 years. A fantastic opportunity arose and I found myself back at the IDA. I am now the Clinical Operations Manager for the IDAs  and you can find me at the Queenstown location! I see so many people come into the clinic in distress because they do not have a family doctor. I love being able to connect people in the community with our telemedicine doctors and advocate to get what they are in need of. I also give a pretty good needle, so come see me for any immunizations or injections! When I’m not working, you can find me hanging with my little family out at camp!

        Emma Jaaskelainen

        Emma is a registered nurse and joined our IDA team last July. She has worked in the hospital and LTC but loves to be providing her care out in the community. We offer government funded vaccines and rapid testing services at the market mall. Emma loves to spend her free time with her cat and sister, who is also a registered nurse. Emma loves to read, be outside and loves the opportunity to learn something new. Come visit her at the Marketmall Ida!

        Jennifer Edwards

        Jennifer is a Clinic Assistant and she was born in Sault Ste. Marie. She left for several years while growing up, and decided to return after she started her own family. While having many connections and attachments to the area it is a great place to raise a family in Jennifers opinion. She has spent the last decade working as a Pharmacy Assistant and Clinical Assistant through Telemedicine. Her job has allowed her to enjoy two of her passions; working with the community and helping others. For her, it is a great feeling to be involved in such a vital service and knowing that she can. Help make a difference in her hometown. She looks forward to the challenges and opportunities each day brings.

        Samantha Nyman

        Samantha moved to Sault Ste Marie a few years ago to attend college. Her relationship with the I.D.A started last year, with a cooperative education program at the Wellington Square location with Mark Febbraro. Since then she’s worked at Market Mall and is now happily back at Wellington Square. You will see her in the clinic and at the In/Out counter in the pharmacy. The one thing she loves most about her clinical position is helping others find solutions to their medical problems through Telemedicine. 

        Nicholas Armanious

        Nicholas has worked with I.D.A in many degrees. While he was a student at Algoma University, he had the opportunity to work in the only operating clinic within the Sault Ste. Marie area. Since then, Nick has been in pharmacy and a clinic assistant for a few years. It is through his job where he has the ability to help connect individuals’ with GTA physicians as they look into the clients health, listen to concerns without judgement and think about the next course(s) of action. The I.D.A. team looks forward to giving back to the community. In these unprecedented times, everyone tries their best to make sure you are safe and comfortable. “You are not alone’ we are here to grow with you. We are proud to be a part of Sault Ste. Marie’s community and we work for what you need. P.S. You are always welcome to stop by and ask questions or to simply say ‘Hi’”.
