Angela holds a Masters of Public Health from the University of British Columbia (UBC), as well as a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours), majoring in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Calgary. Throughout her academic career, Angela specialized in health research and program evaluation, focusing on emerging issues in early childhood development, maternal health, immigrant health, and nutrition. She has also worked and volunteered with several non-profit and government organizations in Calgary and across British Columbia (BC). Angela’s passion for working in the non-profit industry began through a summer internship with the United Way of Calgary and Area’s Neighbourhoods Division where she had the opportunity to support youth undertaking projects to improve their communities. Following her undergraduate studies, in 2014-15, Angela continued to pursue her passion by working with two community organizations in Calgary: the Salvation Army Community Services (Calgary) and Youth Central. At the Salvation Army, she worked closely with immigrant families, providing programs for their children and helping them to navigate local health and social services. Additionally, with Youth Central, Angela organized volunteer opportunities for youth ages 12 to 18 and provided training and mentorship. Through this work, she aimed to foster a sense of volunteerism and leadership amongst the youth. In her current position as Senior Evaluation Analyst at Reichert and Associates, a research and program evaluation firm in Vancouver, Angela is leading 10 projects with local non-profit and governmental organizations. Her clients range from larger non-profits, such as Doctors of BC and the provincial Health Authorities, to smaller grassroots organizations advocating for and promoting the rights of underserved populations across the province, such as women in the Downtown Eastside and francophones living in minority in BC. Angela works with these organizations to support the development and evaluation of their programs and to support knowledge translation of evaluation findings. Additionally, Angela currently sits on a volunteer committee with the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective (VWHC), who serves female-identifying and non-binary individuals in the Downtown Eastside.
