About Shawna

I have spent over a decade working with the provincial, regional, and First Nations health authorities, BC Government, and many First Nations communities within BC. I was an employee with the various health authorities early in my career, but now my work is solely focused on consulting and contracting as a private practitioner. My current work covers management, advocacy, strategic planning, program management, and project development within a health context. To keep me current and well-practiced as a Mental Health Clinician, I maintain a small private practice. My career has and still spans the care continuum from direct service to systemic level legislation, policy, and contracts; while also transcending the health spectrum from primary to acute and community settings. One of my biggest strengths is the balance of my experience as a direct service care provider and leadership/management roles, which provides a holistic perspective and integrated understanding of the health care systems and the individual’s experience.
