We are very excited to welcome Jillian to the AIR Team. Jillian is a graduate from Dalhousie’s Health Promotion program (with a focus on community), and a recent graduate of NSCC’s advanced diploma program in Addictions and Community Outreach. As part of her study requirements, Jillian was involved in the creation and organization of harm reduction programs and frameworks to be used across Nova Scotia, including those involved with smoking cessation and suicide prevention. In addition, Jillian has experience with affordable real estate construction and design for youth who are at risk of homelessness.

Prior to working at AIR, Jillian was working as a case manager in the supportive housing field for individuals who are at risk of homelessness, where she was able to help run the withdrawal management program, promote eviction prevention, and advocate for the health and wellness of her tenants. Outside of work Jillian enjoys traveling and spending time with friends and family!
