Our Team

Colette McDermott - Owner & Medical Laboratory Assistanct

Colette McDermott
CEO-Founder / Medical Laboratory Assistant

I moved to the Prince Albert community 24 years ago from the small Northern Manitoba town of Flin Flon. I truly enjoy everything that northern Saskatchewan has to offer. I am passionate about travel and love to play slow pitch in the community. I previously spent 13 years in the financial banking industry, then 11 years in health care in clinics and hospitals. I have achieved over 30 years in customer service excellence, a Medical Laboratory Assistant certificate, and a Business Education Program Diploma. It had always been my childhood dream to be an entrepreneur. I am now in year 11 of successfully living the vision with my own company.

Dawn Callaghan - Medical Laboratory Technologist & Information


I was raised in Prince Albert and then moved to Manitoba shortly after graduating high school. While in Manitoba, I raised my family of four children. This has been my greatest role, greatest joy and highest honor of my lifetime! During that time, I also worked casually in customer service and as an educational assistant and ran a home day care. Now that my children are all grown, I decided it was time to find some new opportunities for myself. This has led me right back to my hometown of PA! I’m very excited for this new chapter that has me working the receptionist desk at CPS alongside the most welcoming, helpful and friendly staff ever!!
