As Community animator with the NBACL, Jennifer’s role includes working with adults with disabilities to identify their life goals, facilitating connections for community opportunities, planning and implementing personal support networks, as well as community outreach and partnership development.
Jennifer has been a lifelong passionate advocate and practitioner of inclusion for persons with an intellectual disability. She has been blessed with extensive opportunities to serve, advocate for, and walk alongside persons with an intellectual disability throughout her life. She is grateful to be able to bring the insights she has gained from her diverse experience and education to the Social Inclusion Program.
She thrives on connecting with others and celebrating inclusion. Jennifer loves to help others to identify and express their dreams and goals, and to develop a plan to achieve them. A meaningful life is one in which we are known and loved; in which we sense that we truly belong. As Community Animator, Jennifer is honoured to help facilitate these opportunities and enrich these bonds between a person and their community.
