Randi holds a Bachelor of Social Work and Social Services Diploma from UFV, and has worked at both non-profit and private counselling agencies.
“I myself have experienced the profound impact that finding the right counsellor can have on one’s quality of life. Moving Forward’s wide-net approach is very important to me because so many people slip through the cracks, and I believe that this is avoidable.”
Randi holds a Bachelor of Social Work degree and a Social Services Diploma from the University of the Fraser Valley. Her volunteer experience has primarily been with the Correctional Service of Canada as a facilitator for a parenting program. She also has experience in residential addiction treatment, private and non-profit counselling agencies (including a practicum placement at Moving Forward), and community corrections for federal parole individuals. While these settings were all different, one of the commonalities she marked was that finding anti-oppressive, affordable, timely, trauma-informed counselling or other mental health services was a significant challenge for people in every one of these fields.
Randi currently works in the Family Justice Services Division with the BC Public Service and is the mother of four wonderful children aged two through sixteen. In her spare time, she enjoys practicing yoga, baking, and spending time in nature.
