Jaime Jacomen

VP, National Programs

As Vice President of National Programs Jaime provides strategic leadership to the delivery of Shad programs and experiences across the country.

Jaime believes everyone can make a difference in the life of someone. She is proud of the unique opportunity Shad provides youth to discover their own gifts and passions, learn how to share those gifts and contribute to the world around them, and create action that leads to positive change and lasting impact.

For over 20 years, Jaime has worked in the chartable sector serving the community by gaining insight and understanding into social challenges, developing and providing responsive programs and services, and striving to influence system-level change leading to long term impact. Jaime leads and fosters a culture that values equity and wellness, offers experiences and connections that honour individuals for who they are while opening doors to learning and growth, and creates spaces where people feel a sense of security and belonging.

Outside of her work at Shad, Jaime enjoys spending time with her family playing games and exploring the outdoors, as well as volunteering and participating in community tables and events.
