The Foundation Team

Meet the team who are working tirelessly to facilitate strategic investment in women’s health. 
Michelle Candido
Strategic Partnerships Coordinator

As a natural born sales women, Michelle, decided long ago that she wanted to sell good ideas rather than stuff. After sharpening her chops for eight years at TransLink in sustainable transportation, she had a baby at BC Women’s Hospital and pondered the idea of a career transition. Naturally, when she was presented with the opportunity to coordinate campaigns at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre Foundation, she embraced the new role and the quest to improve health outcomes for women and newborns. There she utilizes her many years of community engagement, marketing and communications to develop creative and provocative campaigns inspiring awareness and giving back to the Foundation. When not at her desk, you can find her riding a bike, juggling motherhood and contributing her time to community walking initiatives such as Janes Walk.
