Bev’s career has focused on our most marginalized populations gaining extensive knowledge with respect to persons with chronic, pervasive health concerns, having worked within the Mental Health Care Program at London Health Sciences Centre for 20 years, initially in the Child & Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatry division and later in the Prevention & Early Intervention of Psychoses Program.

Bev’s believes that everyone should be given equal opportunity to function as a contributing member of their community, and her passion for providing wrap-around supports to persons with a variety of barriers has led to her growth as a Vocational Planning Counsellor into her current dual role as Chief Mission Advancement Officer and Executive Director for Goodwill’s Career Centres.  

Bev has been a keynote speaker for the Elgin Middlesex Oxford Workforce Planning & Development Board on topics of ‘Growing Your Workforce’ and ‘Mental Health in the Workplace’. Bev’s leadership style is from a growth mindset perspective, leveraging coaching and a solutions-focused approach to help others develop, strengthening our collective impact. Bev is committed to continuous improvement and the belief that change is necessary for growth – as an individual, organization, community and nation. Bev is currently a Board Director for St. Leonard’s Society of London.

Bev has a Youth Counsellor Diploma from Fanshawe College, Psychosocial Rehabilitation Certificate from Mohawk College, Professional Certificate in Leadership from Western University, recently completed the Community Shift program through Ivey School of Business and is enrolled in the Executive Development program through Goodwill Industries International.
