Jane Emslie joined our board just over a year ago, in February 2014.
With extensive experience working within the health care field in group insurance, benefits consulting, and corporate leadership, Jane adds valuable knowledge and drive to our team.
Jane is the Vice-President of Group and Individual Business at Manitoba Blue Cross, where she has been since 2009. Prior to this, Jane worked as a consultant and in a corporate environment in the insurance industry. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) Degree and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Manitoba.
Jane is a volunteer for many local causes; she is a member of the United Way Winnipeg Campaign Cabinet, where she co-chairs the Tech and Finance Division, a Yes! Winnipeg Investment Council Member, and an honorary council member of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. She has also served on the local council and National Board of the Canadian Pension and Benefits Institute and the Board of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
Misericordia is also a local cause that is dear to Jane’s heart.
“I am proud to be a part of an organization that believes a higher standard of care can always be achieved. We see this in the Buhler Eye Care Centre, and in the many excellent programs and facilities that Misericordia has in place for our aging population.”
Jane is a firsthand witness to the impact of compassionate care, as her father is a resident at Misericordia Place.
“Misericordia Health Centre was a great help to my family as we navigated through the complexities and challenges of the healthcare system, looking for the best place to care for my dad. This experience has deepened my commitment to Misericordia – there is so much that we can do to make aging a better experience for Manitoba families and I am proud to be part of that.”
While Jane is in the early days as a board member for MHC Foundation, she has hit the ground running, providing fresh and meaningful insight to our fundraising activities and strategic planning initiatives.
“I have seen firsthand the impact that we can have as a community on our own healthcare system. I look forward to making a difference and to being a part of the next Phase of the Future of Care at Misericordia.”
