Type: Board Motion Regarding Public Safety

Registrant: Dr. Holly Jean Smith (Registrant No. 1849)

NATURE OF ACTION: The Inquiry Committee disposed of a complaint against the Registrant under section 33(6)(b) of the Health Professions Act by asking the College’s Board to authorize and direct publication of the following notice under section 53(1)(b) of the Act.

NOTICE: The College received a complaint from a member of the public regarding a psychoeducational assessment that was completed on their child. While this matter was under investigation, the Registrant retired from practice and converted her registration status to non-practising, effective March 31, 2019. The Registrant has not admitted to having breached professional standards, and the allegations made in the complaint have not been proven. However, as a result of the Registrant’s voluntary change in her registration status, she is no longer authorized to practice psychology in British Columbia, and the Inquiry Committee has decided to close its investigation file on that basis.
