Staff Transitions

It is always hard to see staff move on to new adventures, but we hope you will join us in wishing two team members the best as they transition.

Candice Wilson, our Tribal and Community Liaison, has taken a position with the Lhaq’temish Foundation whose mission is stated on their website as “Nilh Xwenang Tse Schelangen Este Nexw Xwlemi (this is our way of life in Lummi) – a healthy, giving, and prosperous community to strengthen our people through cultural, social, and economic abundance.” We are excited for Candice in this leadership role and wish her the best.

Ross Howell is also taking on a new role. Ross has been one of our Project Managers working in oral health, bidirectional integration and transitional care, and earlier this year moved to Vancouver, BC. Starting in January he will be a Senior Consultant for Innovation, Planning and Transformation for Fraser Health in Surrey, BC. We will miss both of these amazing team members, but are excited for them as they move into new roles. 

We have also added some new staff to our team, so please join us in welcoming:

Starleen Maharaj-Lewis, joining our team as the Community HUB Manager. Starleen’s experience working with marginalized populations in diverse settings across the nation, and in developing a framework for health equity infrastructure, makes our team even stronger. Starleen holds a BA from the University of British Columbia, and attended graduate studies in Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Tulane University. 
 
Khushdip (Khush) Brar, joining as Finance and Administrative Associate.  Khush comes from a diverse cultural background and brings forth her rich knowledge in business administration to our finance team. She has a loving daughter, caring mother and supportive husband who complete her world. Khush always strives to become a better person and hopes to bring that to our organization.
