Over the past 20 years I have worked within the non-profit and public sectors and loved every minute of it. I have led numerous large scale projects which focused on system transformation and organizational transition at both local and provincial levels, enjoying work the most when it is change-oriented and innovative.
Most recently I was privileged to oversee the $14 million expansion and transition project for Ronald McDonald House Charities Hamilton and spent five years as their Chief Executive Officer. Prior to that, I worked at the Central Local Health Integration Network as the Director, Strategic Alignment and Director, Health System Planning & Development and managed $150 million in project allocations for the provincial Aging at Home and Emergency Room Wait Times strategies.
I am passionate about social impact strategy development, corporate social ‘opportunity’ and lifting organizations and businesses to a place of contribution that makes a difference. Most projects have involved all sectors including non-profits, provincial governments, and businesses where we have successfully created new shared-value partnerships, service integrations and outcomes-focused programming.
In addition to my social sector street creds, I am a certified Corporate Sustainability Practitioner (CSR-P) and work with companies to develop comprehensive Sustainability Reports and customized in-house sustainability training.
I am a member of the International Association of Facilitators and a Collective Impact Coach with Innoweave.
Companies with tangible and publicly disclosed sustainability goals are four to five times more likely to improve their financial, social and environmental performance compared to those who do not set goals.
