Lisa Yeo

Lisa was born and raised on Treaty 7 land in Calgary AB, has spent time living in Vancouver BC and now calls Saskatoon (Warman) SK home. She has a passion for animal rights, environmental sustainability, and health equity and has a masters degree in Sociology (Health) from UBC. She currently works at the University of Saskatchewan as a coordinator in the Division of Social Accountability, supporting the College of Medicine in its efforts to ensure all of its activities are aligned with the priority health needs of Saskatchewan residents. In past jobs she has worked in evaluation for cancer screening, quality improvement, and patient engagement. In her spare time, Lisa enjoys getting outside for a run, sweating it out at hot yoga, crafting it up at home or mixing it up in the kitchen trying out a new vegan recipe. While she fondly misses having Stanley Park and the English Bay seawall in her backyard, she has enjoyed putting down roots in Saskatchewan and loves how interconnected the community is here. She feels we are truly on the cusp of some radical social change and has been working to embody the changes she hopes to see in our society in both her personal and professional life. She believes that even one person has the power to create lasting and impactful change and that we have far more in common with one another than we do differences. She dreams of a world where every individual is provided with the foundation to live a full and happy life and hopes to leave this world better than she found it for future generations.
