A former secondary school teacher, Mali understands firsthand the challenges and opportunities schools face in advancing integrated approaches to wellbeing in schools. Mali draws on her experiences working with youth in East Vancouver, teachers in Kenya, and faculty at UBC, and school district leaders across the province. Mali’s role is to work alongside provincial associations and organizations to lead the implementation and operations of WellAhead in BC.
Mali grew up in Port McNeill, a town of 3,000 people on northern Vancouver Island, and has interest in global solidarity and in approaches to understanding settler-colonial family histories in North America. When not at work, you can find Mali riding her bicycle, kayaking, or making music in East Vancouver.
