As Manager, Program Operations for Jack.org, Safina oversees Talks, Chapters, and operations across the team. Safina is excited to be working with our network of youth leaders across Canada as they educate their peers about mental health and work to overcome barriers to positive mental health. From an operations lens, Safina loves supporting her team by helping create new processes and systems to support the way we work together. 

Safina comes to Jack.org from a background in health management and has explored her passion for improving health systems. Safina spent several years in consulting with PwC where she had the opportunity to work with a wide range of hospitals, governments, and organizations to transform their operations and technology. She has also worked in hospital supply chain management at Plexxus and process improvement at SickKids. 

Safina is passionate about social impact and enjoys volunteering in her community with the Aga Khan Health Board where she leads mental health promotion activities such as educational webinars and social media campaigns for the community. 
Safina holds a Masters of Management of Innovation and a Bachelor of Sciences in Psychology and Human Biology from the University of Toronto, and is pursuing an online specialization in Foundations of Global Health. 

You can find Safina drinking tea (most likely blended by teaBOT), listening to podcasts (probably Harry Potter or The Office), making puns, or creating long lists of new plant-based recipes and restaurants to try.
