Staff Aimée Israel Toronto, ON VP, Operations & Special Projects She/her English Aimée’s love of cycling introduced her to the amazing Jack Ride, and she got to know the organization through involvement with the Ride Committee. She wears a lot of hats at Jack.org. Aimée oversees the Operations Department, which includes finance, IT, systems, legal, and office matters—including our office at CSI in Toronto. Her role also includes Special Projects that range from mergers to cybersecurity projects on which she typically acts as the quarterback, working with external advisors. Aimée also supports the Executive Director and the Board of Directors as the Secretary to the Board. Aimée’s mental health motto in a word is equanimity. We need to foster resilience and mental calmness to face challenges. She likes to think that she is solar powered, so when Aimée is not working you can find her outside cycling, listening to a podcast on the dock in cottage country, or travelling to sun-drenched destinations.
