Program Assistant, Patient & Public Engagement
Location: Vancouver, BC
Irina joined the Patient Voices Network as a program assistant in October 2017. Prior to joining PVN she worked in publishing for Canada’s largest Aboriginal newspaper.
Irina holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philology and is passionate about healthy living. She made a mission out of helping the ones around, and has recently graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. She felt ready to make a move towards something she really believes in, so joining PVN came like the perfect step in her career. She thinks that our common effort and actions can make a big difference towards a better health care system.
Irina is also passionate about traveling and as a proud Vancouverite, she published a travel guide about Vancouver’s beautiful tourist attractions. In her spare time she likes to read and write short essays, spend time with friends, chat about the spiritual aspects of life and go out as much as possible to enjoy her adoptive city.
