Originally from sunny Singapore, Jenric brings almost a decade of experience in the healthcare and government sector. Trained as a public health practitioner, she obtained her MSc. in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where her dissertation investigated the social impact of neighbourhoods on health outcomes.
A systems thinker, Jenric is curious about the intersection between population health, urban planning and community building, and how we can collectively create sustainable, thriving communities. She is trained in project management, design thinking, quality improvement, ethnographic research and stakeholder engagement, working in both the public and private sectors, serving both rural and urban communities.
As a settler on the unceded and stolen territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, Jenric has led projects and shaped policies provincially with the Provincial Health Services Authority. She is particularly interested in bringing the voices of those traditionally marginalized and under-represented to the fore. Jenric seeks to ground her work in social justice and believes in co-designing creative, participatory sessions with stakeholders and community members to build trust and ownership. In her spare time, Jenric is a member of NeighbourLab and sits on the Youth Advisory Board of CityHive.
