Katrina specializes in program management and community engagement. She is adept at understanding and responding to the needs of the many community, regional, and provincial partners that she works with to benefit the programs that she oversees.
Working in and with communities since 2008, Katrina recognizes that engaging everyone, from patients to policy makers, in an inclusive way is imperative to building an evidence base to inform the planning of health services. First supporting physicians, nurse practitioners, and midwives to conduct rural health research with a focus on maternity care, she started as the Programs Lead with the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice in 2013. She now supports physicians and nurse practitioners members as their Executive Director. With a strong background in the academic research process, community engagement, and her ability to bring local and provincial partners together, Katrina recognizes that authentic partnerships create innovation and sustainability.
An avid gardener, Katrina moved to Chilliwack in summer 2012, and loves growing everything from artichokes to zucchini. She enjoys going on local hikes and taking long weekends to go camping with her high energy and very cuddly dog, Cobalt.
