Jenna Dafoe – Director
Jenna grew up in a small town in Southwestern Ontario and then moved around throughout the province while pursuing her education. Jenna has lived in North Simcoe for 6 years and intends to remain in this community for many, many years. Jenna has an Honour’s Bachelor or Arts Degree in Political Science, studied at the Master’s level in Political Science, and obtained two Juris Doctor Degrees in Canada and the United States.
Jenna has been involved in many volunteer capacities throughout her life and many fundraising initiatives to benefit community organizations and incredibly important causes. Jenna has been practicing criminal law in the Province of Ontario since 2015 and will be returning to her home office in Simcoe County in 2022.
Jenna has a passion for access to justice and access to healthcare, particularly for the most vulnerable members of our community. Jenna has followed the work of the Foundation for some time and has been very impressed with the community activism and the funds raised to purchase critical hospital equipment that enable community members to obtain the same quality of care as they would in a larger city. Jenna is eager to assist in the overarching goals of the Foundation and to hopefully contribute to the positive impact the Foundation has in our community.
