Meet Sierra

Posted by mbcstaff

My name is Sierra Wells. I am very honoured to be welcomed to Mediate BC in my new role as Senior Collaborative Decision-Making Navigator. 

My mother comes from the Wui’kinuxv Nation of Rivers Inlet and my father was Irish and English. I currently reside in beautiful Victoria which is located on the traditional territories of the Lkwungen (Esquimalt and Songhees and W̱SÁNEĆ (Pauquachin, Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum) peoples.

I graduated in 2001 from the University of Victoria with my Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care. My passion to support Indigenous children, youth and families has allowed me to fill such roles as a youth worker, foster parent, family development worker, and family group conference coordinator. In 2008 I was admitted to the Child Protection Mediation Roster.

I believe that all my previous work experience has prepared me to be where am today, supporting families as they engage in the child protection system.  It is my hope that the families will be empowered as they make decisions in the best interests of their children.

I am excited to be apart of the innovative work being done here at Mediate BC.
