Lindsay was first introduced to Jack.org five years ago while at university. Lindsay was eager to get involved and start working towards the collective goal of making change in the mental health space. As the Network Representative for Alberta, Lindsay works alongside all the other advocates in her region to bring about mental health change in our communities. It means connecting fellow advocates to one another and representing the province as a whole. Lindsay is inspired by the work Jack.org does because it is truly for youth, by youth. “Everything is driven by young people, and I think that is so important when it comes to creating change for youth mental health. When young people see fellow youth on platforms like this, it creates a community within our advocacy efforts and that further drives our mission!” When Lindsay is not doing Network Rep work, she works as a Registered Nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for sick and premature babies. Being able to help babies and their families each day and see them go home after staying in the hospital for months is very rewarding for her. Lindsay feels honoured to be able to have a small impact in these little ones' lives.
