Jennifer Wilson, President

Jennifer Wilson is passionate about fostering healthy individuals and families who have a sense of pride and belonging in their communities. She has a unique blend of skills emanating from 20 years of public sector and consulting experience. She started her career as a professional community planner creating the policy and plans for community. However, it was when she shifted into the parks, recreation and culture sector that she found her niche, focusing on creating the community fabric – one characterized by thriving individuals, vibrant neighbourhoods, quality and inclusive services, and people across all sectors working together.

When she established her consulting firm she broadened her focus beyond parks, culture and recreation to other key sectors including health, education, economic development, early childhood development, and technology. She has worked within small communities, First Nation communities, regional districts, multiple provinces and territories, and federal organizations. Jennifer has a reputation for innovation and creativity within the context of being strategic and principle-based.

This is Jennifer’s second year on the Board of Directors.
