She is responsible for identifying and capitalizing on opportunities to enhance our organization's impact and reach while monitoring and measuring that impact. Justine will collaborate with our leadership team to establish partnership projects and build system capacity by envisioning, developing, and maintaining key relationships and partnerships that will better connect services across the system both within and outside Kensington Health.
