Tammy Rosner

Toronto, ON
As Evaluation Lead, Tammy works with the evaluation team to better understand the effectiveness of Jack.org’s programs—what’s working, what isn’t, and what needs changing. She also communicates those findings to provide insights to Jack.org youth, staff, and donors so that everyone can know what Canadian youth are saying about their mental health.
 
Tammy completed her MA in clinical psychology at the University of Waterloo and her PhD in cognitive psychology (studying memory and attention) at McMaster University. Before joining the Jack.org team, she worked at the University of Toronto as the Data Analyst for Course Evaluations. She’s also volunteered with Camp Erin Toronto every summer since 2013, a weekend camp that brings together youth of all ages who are grieving the death of a loved one (it’s way more fun than it sounds).
 
In her spare time, Tammy can be found listening to podcasts (usually Harry Potter or science-related) and crocheting, playing board games, snuggling with her 70-pound dog (who thinks he’s a lap dog), or re-watching The Office… again. She hasn’t been able to let go of her science roots, so Tammy occasionally writes blog posts for Let’s Talk Science and Science Borealis.
 
My mental health revolution involves a world where taking care of our own and each other’s mental health is second nature, where everyone can access affordable mental health care, and where we all feel comfortable discussing our mental health with one another.
