Maureen joined the Council in October 2019 in the role of Leader, Health System Improvement. Prior to this Maureen worked as an organizational development consultant at Island Health supporting leaders and their teams as they navigated the complex, constantly changing, rough waters of the health system. Maureen was also privileged to lead the Culture and Transformation portfolio for the North Island Hospital Transition in Comox and Campbell River. Through this Maureen led organizational change efforts as the St. Joseph’s Hospital affiliate physicians, staff and volunteer teams moved into to the new North Island Hospitals in the Comox Valley and Campbell River. This work has been a career highlight… so far.
Maureen is passionate about supporting individuals and teams as they stretch in their leadership capabilities and rise to address the challenges facing our health system today. Engagement, relationships, leadership, process consultation, learning and transformational change are all facets of Maureen’s work conducted through the lens of truly seeing dynamic and complex systems.
Maureen holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon and a Master of Arts in Leadership from Royal Roads University, and she is an ICF-certified executive and team coach. She has held the position of Associate Faculty at Royal Roads University in the School of Leadership Studies (health and non-health streams) for the past eight years.
In her non-work time Maureen can be found skiing and mountain biking in the Comox Valley while attempting to keep up with her two very active teenagers, her husband and of course the wonder dog “Slalom.”
