Woman guilty of posing as nurse

CALGARY — A woman who has admitted to fraudulently working as a nurse and a teacher in Calgary has pleaded guilty to a long list of charges.

Brigitte Marier, 38, admits to forging documents to get a job as a registered nurse at a Calgary medical clinic.

While there, she gave two people needles even though she had no qualifications to do so.

She has also admitted to fraudulently working as a teacher at Calgary’s Rose Sauvage School.

Marier had served jail time in Ontario for posing a registered nurse there as well.

She has even faked her way into a hair salon that is now closed and for sale, leaving her business partner on the hook for $20,000.

When she is finished serving her sentence in Calgary, officials say she’ll need to answer to outstanding warrants for fraud related charges in Colorado and Florida, where she is known as Brigitte Cleroux.

Those charges are several years old, but officials say they still expect her to be brought before a U.S. court.
