Social Health and Well-Being Lead

Jen has been catalyzing social change for over a decade. She brings a wealth of experience to her position at Urban Matters, including nine years working with local government. As a proven community leader, she knows that social change occurs when government, the private sector, Indigenous groups, non-profit organizations, foundations, and concerned citizens listen to one another and work together. Jen advocates for evidence-based decision making and culturally appropriate methods of citizen engagement. Her expertise in facilitation, her accountability to community, and her ability to create spaces for inclusive dialogue allow her to successfully bridge diverging priorities to create community-driven solutions. 

Jen holds a bachelor’s degree in human geography from Thompson Rivers University and is a Master’s candidate in Community Development at the University of Victoria. Her home base is in Kamloops, BC where she enjoys running, hiking, and chasing her two kids.
