Jeannie Jacobson

Indigenous Activity Worker

I am the Indigenous Program Assistant and have been with Connections for over a year now. I am Kwaguilth from Port Hardy’s Gwa’Sala Nation. I am a mother of 5 children, I have lived on the lower mainland for the last 13 years. As a mother I’ve had the joy of being a part of the community, attending programs provided by Connections Community Services Society and many others including most of the Native Friendship Centers on Vancouver Island and in the lower mainland, when my children were young – now I am apart of the team. To see the Indigenous Family program grow from the start has been my dream goal. Connections is a wonderful place to be working for with such a supportive team.
