Char obtained her Masters of Public Health from the University of Alberta, and from there went on to become passionate leader in Health Promotion. Currently, Char works at BC Children's Hospital as part of the Mental Health Literacy Team. When she's not challenging the many myths, stereotypes, and stigmas that surround mental health, you can find Char playing with her energetic young children and trying to squeeze in many moments of self-care that allow her to show up as her best self, every day.
*Special note that Char is currently on maternity leave raising a healthy, beautiful tiny human! Bryn will be co-hosting in her place.
Michelle obtained her Masters of Public Health from the University of Alberta. Michelle is an innovator who sees the value of Health Promotion and the positive effects it can have on the lives of families in BC. Michelle works at BC Children's Hospital managing the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre and its many health literacy initiatives. Outside of work, Michelle is a parent of two young children who keep her curious and on the go.
