bio

Experienced in evaluation, health care systems, and global health, Jenna supports our Research team with knowledge translation, health literacy, and education projects. Her detail-oriented approach strengthens our literature scans, data collection, data analysis, and report writing.

Jenna has long advocated for multidisciplinary, evidence-based solutions to improve population health and quality of life. Knowing that for solutions to be truly effective they must be accessible, Jenna centres her work on equity, reflexivity, and compassion. As a crisis responder for Kids Help Phone, she has seen how leading with compassion and meeting people where they are builds real connections and a true understanding of others. Further, in her role as a program coordinator for oncology supportive care, Jenna supports health literacy and accessibility as she conducts clinical and evaluation research to ensure that the care program meets the needs of every patient.

Understanding that the intersection of policy, history, and science is fundamental to population health and equity, Jenna is passionate about adapting to continuously evolving social, economic, and historical contexts to improve health outcomes for all.

Jenna holds a BA in International Relations from the University of British Columbia, and is a Master of Public Health candidate at Simon Fraser University.
