We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new Executive Director, Faydra Aldridge.

Faydra’s career has spanned over twenty years in the fields of strategic and corporate communications, including project management, in both the private and public sectors. Before joining BCSS, she held a leadership role with one of the largest health research institutes in Canada – Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute – where she oversaw the Stakeholder Relations portfolio. In this role, Faydra was the liaison between Heath Researchers and senior executives within Vancouver Coastal Health, Hospital Foundations, and academic institutions. She also has leadership experience with a number of non-profit organizations, including the YMCA where she was involved with the strategic direction of the organization, the development of new community partnerships, and oversaw the stakeholder relations and fundraising portfolios.

Faydra has formal training as a Broadcast Journalist, eventually becoming a CBC Morning Show Producer.  Her management experience combined with her passion for health/fitness has allowed her to lead international teams in parts of Africa and Asia. Faydra’s roots are in Calgary, Alberta but she has called BC home for over fifteen years.

Please join us in welcoming Faydra to the BCSS Team.
