Sabina has held leadership positions within the social service non-profit sector for over 17 years, providing a full range of proactive support services for street-involved and homeless youth. She believes strongly that the trauma embedded in the intersections of race, gender, mental health and poverty makes it particularly important for us to build new ways of working together within our communities. Social cohesion, intersectionality and decolonization are themes that are deeply woven within Sabina’s support provision, activist work and research.
Sabina has a BA in Women’s Studies from the University of Guelph, and is in the process of completing an MA in Dispute Resolution from the School of Public Administration at the University of Victoria. She is being mentored by Victoria Smye as the CGSM academic trainee for 2012.
