Meet Hannah

Posted by mbcstaff

Hey everyone!

My name is Hannah, and I’m pleased to be joining the Mediate BC team as the Program Assistant for the Child Protection Mediation Program (CPMP). Thank you to everyone at Mediate BC Society for welcoming me and supporting us during this transition.

Currently, I live near Lhuḵw’lhuḵw'áyten on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) Nations. I completed my BA at UBC with a major in Political Science and a minor in First Nations & Indigenous Studies, and I am currently completing my Master’s in Political Science, specializing in intersectional sexual & reproductive health rights, Reproductive Justice, gendered & family violence across settler states, and systemic issues surrounding mass incarceration specifically in Canada and the US. Outside of work and school, I love hiking with my dog and participating in community art events with my partner, who is an artist.

I have been looking forward to participating in local work related to conflict-resolution, violence prevention, and family wellness, and I am very grateful to have found Mediate BC. Relationships and community are extremely important to me; I am eager to be a part of a strong community where we actively work to ensure that children and youth are safe and heard, and where self-determination is not only possible, but protected.
