Global Health Consultant
Whitley completed a Master of Science in Global Health in August 2021, specializing in Community Health and has been a practicing Registered Nurse in Canada since 2013. She co-led a successful “You Are Not Alone” campaign supporting mothers living in low-income neighbourhoods in seeking resources before, during and after pregnancy as a nursing student. Since then, she has had nursing experience working in acute surgical care, emergency care, telehealth, and teaching nursing.
After years of travel and the opportunity to volunteer as a nurse in India, her passion for women and girls’ health equity and climate sustainability could no longer be ignored and led her to a master’s degree. As part of her Global Health course requirements, she completed her 10-week practicum with Heights and Minds Foundation during the summer of 2021. Since then, she has continued her work on developing and expanding the e-learning modules and fundraising strategies for Heights and Minds. Her goal is to assist in the expansion of MindUps and see children thrive while supporting women and girls’ empowerment.
