Prior to joining Jack.org, Garry graduated from Simon Fraser University with a BA in Environmental Geography focusing on sustainable development and how the environment is connected to our health and well-being.  In the past, Garry has also had the opportunity to work for various non-profit organizations that focus on community engagement, education and advocacy.

My mental health revolution is when workers across all industries can take a mental health day without any stigma or repercussions.  Through eduction, dialogue and compassion, I know this is a goal our society can achieve!!
