We’re excited to announce that we’ve recently welcomed two new staff to our strong roster of committed individuals who want to make a difference in the health and wellbeing of those living in British Columbia.

Tracy Penner is our new Senior Development Officer and Madison (Maddie) Mackenzie is our new Development Coordinator, who both will be working to enhance and strengthen our ability to raise funds for important public health work. What’s more, Tracy and Maddie are passionate about health equity, helping to put an end to the overdose crisis, and supporting our population as we look toward pandemic recovery in our province. 

I’m thrilled to welcome Maddie and Tracy, who bring genuine interest in health, equity, and community impact to their roles on our team. They each have diverse experiences and knowledge that will support the growth and reach of the Foundation as we work to address the overdose crisis, support COVID-19 recovery, and advance public health in BC and beyond.

Tracy and Maddie are very enthusiastic about their roles, the work that lies ahead, and the positive impact they’ll help make toward the vision of the BCCDC Foundation and advancing the health of our population.

This pandemic has made me even more aware of the inequities of our global health systems and the urgent need to address them. I feel both privileged and excited to work with this small, but mighty team, who have been so proactive during this pandemic in helping to protect ALL of our communities and who continue to advocate for health equity for everyone. I am looking forward to meeting and interacting with people in our community who are passionate about the important mission of the Foundation.

I’m thrilled to be joining a team that is committed to social justice and health promotion, and at such an important time in BC. The vital work the BCCDC Foundation has undertaken is truly commendable and I look forward to supporting their efforts, helping build upon momentum, and learning from the dedicated team.

While they’ve only been with us for less than a month, it’s been wonderful getting to know both on a personal and professional level. Whether through their education, travels, or life experience, we’re excited about how they each bring something unique and special to our team.
