Foster Parents BC Core Staff
Executive Director – Jayne Wilson
Jayne has a 30 year history working in administration. Her ethical business practice and strategic vision has kept BCFFPA on track for a few years now. She creates a positive, fun atmosphere to work in and provides support and mentorship to the Federation staff members so that they have plenty of opportunity to build their skills and develop their expertise. She believes that our foster parent members and our Board of Directors deserve the best service possible.
Community Network Manager – Ronda Sweeney
Ronda comes from a customer service/administrative background and worked for a time in a foster care receiving home. Ronda’s attention to detail is the Federation’s key to producing great special events and for our Auditor’s delight when he reviews our financial records annually. Ronda encourages our staff to ensure that we are always cognizant of the importance of building our Local Foster Parent Association network so that caregivers aren’t fostering in isolation.
Administrative Assistant – Michelle Relevante
Michelle has a strong administrative background and is supplementing her existing skills with a non-profit management program at BCIT. Her keen interest in policy and attention to detail are a huge benefit to BCFFPA. Michelle’s sense of humor and calm demeanor are exactly what we need in the office! She is also the adoptive kitty-mom of our former office cat, Mango.
Fund Development Coordinator
Anita joined our team at BCFFPA in November 2016. Raised in Boston, Anita has resided in Canada for over 25 years and has worked in the field of fundraising and community building for over 30 years while striving to do something important for others. Anita’s background is in fundraising and communications and feels that her real passion lies in building community relationships in the non-profit world.
Honorary Office Mascot – Mango
Mango, a neighborhood stray, lived with us for 3 years in the office. UPDATE: Happy news! Michelle has adopted Mango.
