JENNIFER GILLIVAN



"World class care for women, children, youth and families in the maritimes."

          Jennifer Gillivan may be the polished, poised President and CEO of the Maritimes' IWK Foundation, but ask her about protecting the health of women, children and families and her feisty Irish side comes out.
          "At IWK, we say that women and children deserve the best for themselves and their healthcare. Typically, women put themselves and their health last and nurture others first. So for me, I'm here because I believe passionately in helping women and children."
          Investing that fervour into the fundraising arm of the IWK Health Centre, which sees more than 290,000 patient visits annually, Jennifer says she runs the nonprofit like a for profit business, with an integrated model that is winning awards. Last year, the Foundation announced the new Sobey Family Chair in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Outcomes, and has built a state-of-the-art mental health facility.
          "This is an organization the community really believes they own. At IWK, we understand the weight of that."
