Brandy is responsible for overseeing our entire team of consultants and for ensuring that the deliverables to our clients are of the highest standard.

Her expertise in program management, campaign development and community based research gives her the on-the-ground experience necessary to provide our consultant team with direction, leadership, and an innovative vision for each project.

Brandy’s dynamic leadership style has grown from more than a decade of experience in public health management and campaign development, and over 15 years of creative experience in photography and video production. She has worked both globally and locally to manage a wide variety of programs across several fields, with a particular depth of expertise in HIV, Hepatitis C, harm reduction, and sexual health. She has been invited to present, coordinate and attend conferences internationally including the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network and the Canadian AIDS Society. She was the media co-chair for the IAS AIDS 2006 Conference. In 2007 she managed the Canadian African Partnership project promoting women’s education, empowerment and sexual self esteem through training, employment and the provision of micro loans in Malawi. In 2009, Brandy founded Does HIV Look Like Me? International Society, a non-profit organization that works globally to reduce the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS. In 2011, Brandy led that organization’s innovative implementation of the first rapid HIV Screening project in dental settings in Canada.

Brandy graduated from Simon Fraser University with a degree in Cultural Anthropology. In addition to her work with Be the Change Group, she is a successful professional photographer and an award winning director.
