Rena worked on various parts of CYRRC operations before officially joining the team as Project Assistant in May 2020. Rena has a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Sociology, with minors in English and Psychology from Dalhousie University. Rena supports the process of knowledge mobilization within CYRRC to make the research findings of the projects CYRRC funds accessible and useful to the people they are about, mainly newcomers to Canada and Settlement Service Providers, but also policy-makers, teachers, parents, governments, etc. Rena believe it is important that newcomers and the people supporting them have a voice in the research done about them and that the findings from that research is shared with them in meaningful ways.
