Jessie is one of our two Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Advocates for the province wide GRG Support Line. Her work involves assisting all kinship care providers, including grandparents who are raising their grandchildren full time, in finding solutions to their day to day issues. These can include: accessing child welfare and benefit programs, navigating the legal process for getting custody and guardianship, understanding the Extended Family Program; finding available services and resources and much more.
”I am excited to join PSS. I am a member in good standing with the Law Society of BC, and am an active member of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) – Children Law Sections Executive and is the Legislative Liaison of the CBA Social Justice Section. I also have a keen interest in art, and am on the board of an artist run centre (grunt gallery). I look forward to learning more about the unique and complex challenges faced by kinship caregivers and advocating effectively for this often forgotten group of caregivers.”
