Jessica works for Alberta Health Services in Addictions and Mental Health and is passionate about dispelling myths and reducing the stigma associated with mental health and substance misuse. She is a member of the Health Sciences Association of Alberta, sits on their Social Justice Committee, and was chair for the Committee’s Environmental Adhoc; which organized a clean energy themed member engagement day this past September. As a healthcare professional she cares deeply about the impacts of climate change on the determinants of health across the globe, and as a labour activist feels strongly about the mass potential for jobs emerging from a green economy.
