Jennifer MacLeod

Director, Collective Results

For the past 20 years I have had an exciting and fulfilling career in Public Health. In that time I had varied roles but most notably I developed and led a highly-skilled and multi-disciplinary Analytics team. 

 

I understand the power of translating complex data into meaningful information so that it can be used to make decisions about service provision and allocation of resources.

 

My particular strengths are visioning, strategy, planning, and data visualization. But even more importantly I am skilled at communicating visions and motivating teams to work successfully toward a common goal.

I have a Master's degree in Community Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University. I am also Lean Healthcare Green Belt certified.

Liz Robson

Director, Collective Results

I have had the opportunity to work in various management and project lead roles over the past 15 years across different organizations and sectors. I love working on projects that span an entire organization and those that involve systems planning across a community.

 

It may sound strange, but the work that I gravitate towards is often messy to start. What I mean by “messy” is that I enjoy working as a team to solve complex problems and find solutions. Working together as a team to define a project’s purpose and to establish useful metrics to measure results has the potential to not only improve your processes and outcomes but may also lead to increased work satisfaction and team cohesion!

 

I have a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Waterloo, a leadership certificate from the University of Waterloo and am Lean Healthcare Green Belt certified.

Across different systems, organizations and in a variety of frontline and leadership roles, my work has always been community and partnership driven and evidence-based. I relish opportunities to work with others to move projects forward collaboratively, with empathy and clear communication.

Lindsay Cline

Manager, Collective Results

Over the past 10 years, I have continued to expand my skillset in various roles within higher education and public health. Whether working on research projects or health promotion planning, I have always been interested in gaining a better understanding of the underlying “why” – why we think the way we do, make certain choices, or behave in specific ways – and what can we do to improve?

 

During my time working in public health, I was involved with several different projects focused on program evaluation, group facilitation and strategic planning. I value relationship building through collaboration and taking a thoughtful approach to every project. My strengths include critical thinking, evaluation, and knowledge mobilization.

 

I have a PhD in Applied Health Sciences – Behavioural & Population Health from Brock University.

Auburn Larose

Manager, Collective Results


For over a decade I have had the opportunity to work with various public health, non-profit, and healthcare agencies around the world. From researching maternal health outcomes in India, to developing physical education programming in South Korea, to improving health equity among migrant workers in the United States, I love working on projects that bring people together and use data to drive change.

 

I’ve always been fascinated by the power of data – the ability of numbers in cells, once analyzed and visualized well, to shed light on the unknown, to give depth of understanding, and to breathe life into the questions we want answered. Data can move mountains. 

My strengths are in data science, knowledge mobilization, data visualization, and planning. I thrive in collaborative environments that bring together unique ideas to create innovative solutions. 

 

I have a Master’s degree in Global Health from McMaster University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health Studies from Queen’s University, and a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education from Queen’s University. I am also Lean Sigma Yellow Belt certified.

Brianne Petrina

Manager, Collective Results

For the past 14 years, I have been grateful to do some truly exciting and impactful work across the public, health and academic sectors. Whether it be research supporting national evidence-informed physical activity guidelines, developing a comprehensive health promotion strategy and program from scratch in a new community, leading strategic planning for a children’s services coalition, or advocating for neighbourhoods to be designed in a way that makes the healthier choice the easier choice, doing
evidence-informed, meaningful work with wonderful people has always been my motivation.


I find it rewarding to work collaboratively using various methodologies and approaches to piece together the current story of a community, sector or agency, emphasizing the strengths and opportunities for change. When this information is coupled with evidence-informed approaches to create an innovative, tangible plan, the story can change. My favourite part is witnessing the next chapter of the story evolve to achieve the desired outcomes. My strengths include project management, planning, research and evaluation.


I have a Master’s degree in Health & Exercise Psychology from McMaster University and Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Western University. I am also Lean Healthcare Green Belt certified.

Melissa Potwarka

Manager, Collective Results

Since 2009, I’ve been very fortunate to work in health promotion, community development, and program evaluation in public health and post-secondary institutions. In public health, I served as a systems planner for child and youth planning tables in Guelph, Wellington and Dufferin and managed several interdisciplinary public health teams addressing reproductive health, early childhood development, and public health policy. A highlight for me, was my time with the Wellington Dufferin Guelph Report Card Coalition. We worked across sectors to develop and gather community endorsement on a Child and Youth Charter, create the child and youth report cards, and build new partnership with the local school boards to implement the youth health survey. 

 

In 2019, I had the opportunity to apply these health promotion skills in a new context of higher education. During my time at University of Waterloo, I worked on institutional-wide initiatives to embed wellbeing into everyday operations, business practices and academic mandates. This affirmed my love for facilitating collaborative, multi-sectoral partnerships to address wellbeing and other complex social issues. 

I have a Masters of Science in Health Studies and Gerontology from the University of Waterloo and I am PhD Candidate in the School of Public Health Science at the University of Waterloo.

Tin Vo

Consultant, Collective Results

I have over 10 years of experience leading research and evaluation projects in the public health, social services, and higher education sectors. I have engaged in community-led research, as well as evidence-informed program planning. As an evaluator, my primary approach is utilization-focused, ensuring that projects centre the intended use of evaluation findings. My work seeks to integrate equity within all aspects, from the planning, implementation, analysis, interpretation, and knowledge mobilization stages of projects. My areas of expertise include but are not limited to infectious and communicable diseases, mental health and substance use, as well as discrimination, intersectionality, and wellbeing. My recent work examined social exclusion (e.g., discrimination, stigma) as a determinant of health for marginalized groups and strategies to evaluate equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-oppression initiatives. 

 

I have a PhD (Social Work) from Wilfrid Laurier University, a MPH (Health Promotion) from the University of Alberta, and a HBSc from the University of Guelph. I am also a Credentialed Evaluator with the Canadian Evaluation Society and am Lean Sigma Yellow Belt certified.

Audra Thompson-Haile

Consultant, Collective Results

For the past 15 years I have been working in leadership and project management roles for various public and non-profit settings- always related to improving, informing and/or understanding health-related issues. My background in education provided me with the opportunity to spend much of my earlier career working on research and surveillance projects within school ecosystems. Later, I shifted to a new sector directing a Ministry funded education and research focused program aimed at enhancing the well-being of those who live and work in long-term care. 

 

I thrive when the work I do is not only informed by data and best practices, but when I get the chance to build relationships and work in a collaborative team environment. My strengths include leadership, project management, facilitation and research. 

 

I have a Master’s degree in Physical Education and Recreation from the University of Alberta, and a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees, both from Brock University.

Lauren Alonso

Consultant, Collective Results

 

Over the past 5 years, I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of community organizations in the public health sector as a Consultant and Health Promotion Specialist on a Health Analytics team. The majority of my work has involved leading projects in the areas of substance use and harm reduction, as well as youth health and well-being. I would describe myself as having an analytical mind with a creative flair. I love collaborating with others from diverse backgrounds and have strong skills in program evaluation, data analysis, and knowledge mobilization. 

 

I am very interested in telling the stories of organizations and their clients through data, either by using existing data sources or creating and implementing data collection tools such as surveys. I particularly enjoy transforming data into visualizations that are easy to understand and utilize, such as dashboards and infographics. I believe that by leveraging data, organizations have the power to not only measure their impact but make informed decisions that can improve outcomes for their clients. 

 

I have a Master of Public Health and an Honours Bachelor of Science, both from the University of Guelph.
