To equip & support staff to maximize their effectiveness & resiliency

Ivy got involved with YFC | Youth Unlimited’s StreetLight program in 2003 because of her heart for caring for young people that struggle with addictions and are caught in the trap of the sex industry. In 2011 she became a staff member helping provide leadership to StreetLight’s mobile drop-in and leading a strip club outreach.

In 2017 Ivy took on the additional role of Western Region Development Coordinator as part of the YFC Canada People Development Team.

In her free time Ivy enjoys reading novels, watching movies and tv and spending quality time with her family and close friends. A drive in the country always ensures a literal and figurative ‘breath of fresh air’.
