We are proud to introduce to new members of our volunteer Board of Directors.
Jessica Barclay grew up in North Delta, British Columbia. She played competitive softball throughout her youth and received a scholarship to play at the University of Detroit Mercy. After a year in Detroit, Jessica returned to Vancouver and attended UBC where she was a member of the very first UBC varsity women’s softball team. She received a Bachelor of Human Kinetics in Kinesiology and Health Sciences and a Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology at UBC.
Since 2017, Jessica has worked as a speech-language pathologist (S-LP) with all populations (birth to adult) with a variety of communication needs. She continues to participate in recreational and semi-competitive sport. What she enjoys most about her work and personal life is the connections that she builds with others. Jessica feels that communication, connection and participation in one’s community are integral to one’s self-worth and self-identity. Further, as the youngest of four and an auntie to six, Jessica strongly values family, friendships and teamwork. She is thrilled to be able to share these values, and her passion for people as a new board member of KidzFirst Canada!
